4GV / Variation 2 Packaging
Packagings tested and manufactured in accordance with 178.601(g)(2) are commonly known as “Variation 2” or “4GV” packaging systems. These systems allow for the shipment of articles or inner packagings (inner containers) of any type, containing solids or liquids. This exception from the normal testing requirements is useful when a shipping situation requires the use of multiple primary containers shipped in common configurations and when the number of containers to be shipped is few enough to make a certification test impracticable.
You can feel confident shipping your hazmat liquids and solids using our 4GV Variation 2 boxes, shippers, and packaging accessories which are suitable for Packing Groups I, II and III liquids or solids by any mode of transportation. Our UN-compliant 4GV packaging systems have been designed as well as tested and certified in accordance with 49 CFR, ICAO, International Air Transport, and IMDG/IMO requirements.
Additionally, our 4GV packaging systems come assembled with easy to follow Closing Instructions, but even in today’s high-tech world, sometimes speaking to an industry specialist through a phone call is the best way to get the job done. Our experts are available to answer your 4GV or any UN packaging questions you may have. Additionally our team is happy to discuss with you any special projects. We are here to help you navigate through the DOT rules and regulations and ensure safe and compliant packaging.
