How to Ship Consumer Commodities and Limited Quantities by Ground and Air

Although consumer commodities and limited quantities qualify for exceptions to some of the regulations, the personnel that package and prepare these shipments are subject to initial and recurrent training requirements by the DOT and IATA.


Learn how to prepare consumer commodities and limited quantities for ground and air transportation in this convenient computer-based session, which fulfills your DOT and IATA training requirements for these materials.


In this interactive course, you will learn:

  • Which consumer commodities are subject to the regulations
  • What exceptions are available and how they apply to your shipments
  • How to classify, package, mark, label, and document your shipments
  • How the phase-out of the ORM-D consumer commodity designation will impact your shipments


You can complete the training anytime when it's convenient for you. Interactive games and quizzes make the training engaging, for maximum retention of information and skills. And, Environmental Resource Center’s Answerline™ is available at no charge for any questions you have during or after the training – for up to one year.
