Temp Controlled Shipments
Are you using the correct labels for your dry ice and lithium battery shipments?
New Class 9 (Dangerous Goods Label for Airfreight)
The new class 9 label is slightly different from the previous one (see below). Make sure that you are using the new label which is now required. Some carriers are no longer accepting shipments with old labels and your shipments might be delayed.
The old label on the left has expired. Use the new one on the right.
Lithium Battery Label
The old label is still valid until the end of 2018. Additionally there is a new label for UN 3091 (regulated temperature logger batteries) that is also being used. Keep in mind that a declaration is also needed on the AWB if the shipment is regulated.
The current label on the left is valid until end of 2018. UN3091 is also available.
Please contact Unitrans in case of questions.
