Restriction on All Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Devices

[ October 21, 2016   //   ]

Effective immediately, United Cargo will implement a restriction on the acceptance and carriage of all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone devices as cargo.

On September 16, United Cargo prohibited the acceptance and carriage of recalled Galaxy Note 7 smartphones due to reports that the lithium ion battery in this device could overheat and catch fire. Similar concerns have now surfaced with Galaxy Note 7 devices that replaced the recalled models. Therefore, we are extending this ban to include all Galaxy Note 7 devices, new or old.

Thank you for your cooperation with this restriction. As always, our primary concerns when transporting dangerous goods are the safety of our customers, our customers’ shipments and the environment.
