    Hey guys,

    Is there an instruction sheet on how to ship Hazardous Materials using ShipRush Web? We are currently using UPS Worldship but our FedEx rates are better and it would allow us to keep all of the package data in one place. I see the fields for hazardous materials are there but not sure how to properly use them. We currently only ship fully regulated UN3480 Lithium-Ion Batteries and UN3481 Lithium-Ion Batteries Packed In/With Equipment.

    Edit: Should also comment, we are already approved to ship Hazmat w/ FedEx and have all of the forms/pouches.

    Nate

    Are you shipping lithium batteries that fall under the Lithium Exception with FedEx, or do you need to declare as specified hazardous materials?

    From the helpfile, regarding lithium and FedEx:

    They are fully regulated, class 9, over 300Wh Lithium-Ion Batteries so they must be declared as hazardous materials.

    OK....refer to the helpfile on how to turn on the option for Hazmat
    https://my.shiprush.com/docs/zfirm/E...ight=hazardous

    Once you have the option on the screen, fill in the fields as required by FedEx

    Thank you,

    FedEx is very touchy about the DOT\Tech Name

    In looking online, the proper name at FedEx for UN3481 is either:

    Lithium Ion packed with equipment
    Lithium Ion contained in equipment

    Try with removing the word batteries from the DOT\Tech Name, and see if that gives better results

    Thank you,
