Tuesday, March 24, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C.  — The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a civil penalty of $116,250 against Neovia Logistics Services, LLC of Irving, Texas, for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on July 11, 2014, Neovia offered a package of six one-gallon containers of corrosive liquid to UPS for shipment by air. A UPS employee discovered the hazardous material after the shipment began leaking.

The FAA alleges the package was not declared to contain hazardous materials and the materials offered were not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled and in proper condition for shipment under the Hazardous Materials Regulations. Further, the FAA alleges Neovia provided no emergency response information with the package.

Neovia has 30 days after receipt of the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the Agency.
