CHEMTREC Coverage Levels
As a valued CHEMTREC customer, you have the opportunity to use CHEMTREC's emergency phone number—or any number directed to CHEMTREC’s call center—on shipping documents, SDS, and hazard communication labels for all shipments. CHEMTREC offers three levels of coverage:
- Inside Zone
- Outside Zone
Our coverage options save organizations time and money and help mitigate the financial consequences and reputational damage of non-compliance or inadequate practices. Just let us know where you’re shipping to and where you’re shipping from and we’ll help you decide the best coverage option for your company.
Inside Zone Coverage
Registering for Inside Zone Coverage makes sense for your company if all of your shipments originate from countries in the same zone, and they are delivered to countries within that same zone.
For example, shipments originating from the U.S. (Zone 1) that are delivered to Canada (Zone 1) require Inside Zone Coverage.
Outside Zone Coverage
Outside Zone Coverage makes sense for your company if all shipments originate from countries in the same zone, but they are delivered to countries outside of that initial zone. This service option also includes Inside Zone Coverage when you ship to countries inside your primary zone.
For example, shipments originating from the U.S. (Zone 1) that are delivered to Australia (Zone 8) require Outside Zone Coverage.
Combination of Inside Zone and Outside Zone Coverage
Some companies benefit from a combination of Inside Zone and Outside Zone coverage options when some shipments fall within a single zone, while others cross zone boundaries. CHEMTREC representatives can evaluate your unique situation and help you select the most cost-effective solution.
For example, shipments originating from the U.S. (Zone 1) that are delivered to Canada (Zone 1) require Inside Zone Coverage. But if you also have shipments originating from Brazil (Zone 2) that are delivered to Australia (Zone 8), Outside Zone Coverage is also required.
Registering for CHEMTREC's Global Coverage makes sense for your company if your shipments originate from countries in multiple zones around the world, and are delivered to countries in multiple zones. Global Coverage has no geographical limitations.
For example, Global Coverage is the best option when you have shipments originating from multiple zones, such as the U.S. (Zone 1), Chile (Zone 2), and Australia (Zone 8), that are delivered across multiple zones, such as Canada (Zone 1), France (Zone 3), South Africa (Zone 6), and India (Zone 9).
