UN Boxes

4GV UN Boxes

4GV UN boxes (or 4GV boxes) are special 4G UN packaging where an outer package can be filled with a variety of (untested) inner packages. The manufacturer’s packing instructions must be followed for the UN certification to be valid. All 4GV boxes are X-rated for solids & liquids in packing groups I, II, & III. 4GV boxes provide flexibility for those who:

♦ ship a variety of dangerous goods
♦ have dangerous goods in uncommon or varying sizes
♦ ship samples of hazardous materials for QC/testing
♦ ship dangerous goods infrequently

4G UN Boxes

4G UN boxes (or 4G boxes) are UN packaging systems which includes specific inner packages contained within a single outer box. The outer package bears the UN packaging code, which remains valid provided the 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.

Custom UN boxes

Custom UN boxes are designed to accommodate the size and quantity of your specific inner packagings. A custom UN box is the most efficient way to transport your dangerous goods. Custom 4G boxes are typically viable for those who:

♦ ship dangerous goods in high volumes
♦ ship dangerous goods in standardized inner packaging
♦ want to reduce intermediate packaging and gross shipping weights
♦ want branded UN packaging
