DOT Labels

D.O.T. Labels

If your clients manufacture or ship hazardous materials, they often need to comply with Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) federal regulations regarding notifications of the hazard in the package, carton, container, or drum. This is covered in 49CFR of D.O.T. rules. The labels must be retained on the packaging until it is sufficiently cleaned of residue and purged of vapors. Proper D.O.T. labels ensure that products reach their destination without costly fines and rejections. They clearly identify contents and provide special instructions to ensure packages will be handled properly based on EPA and D.O.T. specifications and regulations. At Piedmont, we have a wide selection of D.O.T. labels that you can offer to your clients so they effectively meet D.O.T. requirements.
