How to Ship Bulk Hazardous Materials by Ground

The Department of Transportation has established stringent requirements for bulk shipments of hazardous materials. Learn how to prepare bulk shipments in Environmental Resource Center’s web-based training that makes the DOT rules easy to understand.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Determine which materials of the materials that you ship are classified as hazardous materials when shipped in bulk quantities
  • Properly select, fill, and seal bulk packages
  • Determine which marks and placards apply to your shipments
  • Properly complete shipping papers
  • Protect yourself from hazards and emergencies
  • Comply with security requirements applicable to your shipments


All personnel involved in bulk shipments of hazardous materials must receive general awareness, function-specific, safety, and security training. This interactive online training fulfills each of these requirements for anyone involved in highway or rail bulk shipments.


You can complete the training anytime when it's convenient for you. Interactive exercises and quizzes make the training fun and engaging. And, Environmental Resource Center’s Answerline™ is available at no charge for any questions you have during or after the training – for up to one year.
