We're a Leading Radiopharmaceutical Courier Company

How Are Radiopharmaceuticals Transported?
Associated Couriers is one of the oldest Radiopharmaceutical couriers in the United States. The company has grown from one man and one van to a company capable of serving customers in 40 states.
Because radiopharmaceuticals are volatile, air travel is most effective for Radiopharmaceutical deliveries. The US Department of Transportation recognizes the importance of fast Radiopharmaceutical deliveries. Radioactive materials are not allowed on commercial flights with the exception of radiopharmaceuticals.
Associated Couriers is TSA-certified and provides Next Flight Out services for critical Radiopharmaceutical shipments. We are proud to serve customers from 72 airports located near our 18 regional hub locations.
All radiopharmaceuticals are transported in Class A packaging. This packaging type must meet integrity and shielding requirements and contains radioactive labeling.
At Associated Couriers, we equip our drivers to transport sensitive radioactive materials. Our drivers have Hazmat endorsed CDL licenses. They are also trained on our comprehensive OSHA-compliant biohazard exposure control plan.
With Associated Couriers’ TSA STA certifications, you can expect fast recovery and destination deliveries.
