What is a 4G UN Box?

4G UN boxes (or 4G boxes) are packaging systems which include specific inner packages contained within a single outer package.  The outer package bears the UN packaging code, which remains valid provided the UN box is assembled in the same way it was during testing - ie. the exact type/number of inner packages need be assembled inside the outer package as per the packing instruction. For boxes that can hold a variety of untested inner packages, see our 4GV UN boxes page

Our stock 4G UN boxes are designed to transport a wide range of dangerous goods in different types of inner packaging: paint cans, aerosols, batteries & more. All UN boxes comply with TDG, 49 CFR, IMDG Code, IATA, & ICAO TI.

Don’t see what looking for? → Perhaps a custom UN box or 4GV UN box is right for you.
