Combination Packaging

Taken from 49CFR 171.8 Definitions and Abbreviations,  the definition of combination packaging is as follows:  “combination packaging means a combination of packaging, for transport purposes, consisting of one or more inner packagings secured in a non-bulk outer packaging.  It does not include composite packaging”.  When asking for combination packaging most people are referring to packaging with a UN4G designation.  The 4=Box and the G=fiberboard.  This article includes several 4G packages, however, we have also included other combination packages that are not UN4G.  One is our 5 gallon steel pail with a polyethylene bottle inside and another is a 4.6 gallon ice melt or oil bottle, with no UN designation.  If the package has a UN designation it is clearly marked.  If you do not see the UN designation, the package is non-UN.
