What is 4GV / Variation 2 Packaging?
4GV / Variation 2 Packaging Systems allow for the shipment of articles or inner packagings (inner containers) of any type, whether solids or liquids. These Packagings are tested and manufactured in accordance with 178.601(g)(2). 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 that are suitable for Packing Groups I, II, and III liquids or solids by any mode of transportation. Our UN-compliant packaging systems have been designed, as well as tested and certified, in accordance with 49 CFR, ICAO, International Air Transport, and IMDG/IMO requirements.
These HAZplus Packaging Systems come assembled with easy to follow Closing Instructions. Should you require additional assistance we have industry specialists available to answer any UN packaging questions you may have. We are here to help you navigate through the DOT Rules and Regulations and ensure safe and compliant packaging.
