    Thanks for talking about how you can’t make a blanket statement that applies to shipping all types of flammable liquid. It makes sense that certain chemicals or materials would have different rules when it comes to shipping them safely. Your point about taking the time to learn the correct way to ship something because it is a legal obligation and can prevent accidents is really smart. If I needed to ship a hazardous material, I would make to contact someone who specializes in that sort of thing so that I knew it would be shipped safely.
