Please accommodate for extra time for heavy, bulky, or hazardous items.

Shipping chemicals (try to avoid this):
If you are shipping chemicals, please make sure that they are packed
appropriately, according to IATA regulations, and that you send all necessary
documentation with it (MSDS sheet). The chemical, concentration and quantity
need to be clearly stated on the packing list. Do not pack chemicals in with other
cargo, even if it is 'non-hazardous' - shipments like that will be pulled apart and
re-packed in Port Hueneme, or may not be forwarded at all. Other shipments
MAY be re-packed in PTH as appropriate or necessary for transportation.

Handcarrying items
Please note that the luggage allowance for American Airlines (the USAP
contracted carrier to Chile) has changed relatively recently: you are now only
allowed to have 2 carry-ons that weigh no more than 50 pounds each. If you are
planning on having a lot of excess baggage, please notify your POC. You can
request excess baggage tags when you send in your TRW (separate form). If
you are handcarrying instrumentation, please be sure to have a hand receipt on
institutional letter head for each item.

New USDA – Aphis regulations for the import of wood packing materials (WPM):
Effective 15 September 2005, the USDA has adpopted new international
regulations on wood packing materials. If you have any items that will be shipped
in wooden crates, please have a look at the USDA website:
http://www.aphis.usda.gov/ppq/wpm/import.html.

RPSC is stil in the process of determining how best to deal with this, please
contact your POC for updates.
