Things To Consider When Shipping Regulated Goods
Regulated goods require special handling, storage, and shipping protocols. Examples include hazardous materials, dietary supplements, medical devices, lithium batteries, and other items subject to FDA regulations.
When you manage multiple businesses with regulated goods in the supply chain or have a business that requires hazardous materials and needs to find a fulfillment partner, third-party logistics (3PL) companies can offer services that benefit your customers, business, and bottom line, SHIPHYPE aids businesses in finding the right 3PL for their needs. Here are some key factors to consider when selecting a partner:
Ensure that your 3PL partner can provide safety and legal documents to prove they can store, handle, and ship hazardous materials. This also applies when storing food items or drugs. The 3PL must have a valid license from local or state government bodies. SHIPHYPE personnel will review all the documentation to ensure compliance with FDA regulations.
When selecting a 3PL partner, it’s important to determine if they have an appropriate storage facility for your product type. A good 3PL should provide safe and secure storage for raw materials, completed goods, and dangerous goods, particularly those containing lithium batteries. SHIPHYPE will ensure that your goods are stored in a temperature-controlled environment and monitored 24/7.
When shipping internationally, customs clearance is an important issue. Ensure your 3PL partner has the expertise and experience to deal with all international regulations involved in the shipment of hazardous materials. SHIPHYPE’s team is well-versed in international supply chain laws and can provide timely customs clearance for you.
