FAA Proposes Penalties Against DHL

[ February 18, 2016   //   ]

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes seven civil penalties totaling $455,000 against DHL Express (USA), Inc, of Plantation, FL, for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.

In each case, the FAA alleges the company accepted shipments that were not properly prepared for air transportation, and failed to ensure its employees or agents received required hazardous materials training.

All the shipments were discovered during inspections at the DHL Express package sorting facility in Erlanger, KY. The proposed civil penalties are $65,000 for each case.
