Hazardous materials transportation

Our nation’s businesses are subject to a complex body of state and federal laws and regulations which govern the transportation of hazardous materials and the staffing and operations of companies engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials and other regulated commodities. With more than a century of industry understanding, Porter Wright brings a comprehensive approach to helping our clients navigate complicated transportation and environmental laws and regulations. We regularly counsel international and domestic carriers and logistics providers on regulatory compliance issues including licensure, class/division, packaging, placarding, driver qualifications, insurance and allocation of risks and obligations by contract. We have deep experience helping transportation and logistics companies understand and navigate U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations including the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). Whether your company is operating by road, rail, air or water, we understand the legal requirements for hazardous material transportation and we leverage our expertise to keep your supply chain moving.
