    I have no pity for Amazon. As much as I love buying stuff, etc. from Amazon, these incidents are not one-offs. Amazon knew what it was shipping and it is blatant disregard for HazMat regulations. UPS doesn’t take any HazMat via air, so all that business goes to FedEx Express. The surcharges for HazMat is by type material. Basically the dangerous chemicals have an $80 charge on top of shipping costs. The amount of extra effort to transport the dangerous things is a big deal. But it is not an excessive charge. I have to hope that Amazon just made some mistakes and isn’t trying to save on shipping costs.
