The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a civil penalty of US$116,250 against Texas-based Neovia Logistics Services for allegedly violating hazardous materials regulations.

The FAA alleges that on 11 July 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 package was not declared to contain hazardous materials and the materials offered were not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labelled and in proper condition for shipment under the hazardous materials regulations.
