The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has proposed a civil penalty of $116,250 against Neovia Logistics Services, LLC for allegedly violating federal Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on July 11, 2014, Neovia offered a package of six one-gallon containers of corrosive liquid to UPS for shipment by air. A UPS employee discovered the hazardous material after the shipment began leaking.

The FAA alleges that the package was not declared to contain hazardous materials and that the materials were not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled, or in proper condition for shipment, as required by federal Hazardous Materials Regulations.

Further, the FAA alleges that Neovia provided no emergency response information with the hazardous package.

Neovia has 30 days after receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the Agency.
