Biohazardous items such as blood, urine, fluids or other infectious diagnostic specimens must be safely packaged to meet DI Overnite specifications for transport.

DI Overnite will, at our sole discretion, ship Other Regulated Materials (ORM-D). ORM-D is typically a consumer commodity which would ordinarily be regulated as a hazardous material but which presents limited hazard due to its smaller quantity, form and packaging for which a limited quantity exception is provided for in the DOT regulations. DI Overnite transports ORM-D shipments via ground only, we do not ship ORM-D by air.
