Items to Know

Shipments by radioactive material brokers that pick up materials at several points, both within or outside of Missouri, are considered one shipment until they have reached their final destination and unloaded.

Each truck is considered a separate shipment under the statute, even if more than one truck is traveling together.

Each train is considered one shipment, no matter how many cars of material are included in the train.

The fee does not apply to shipments by common carrier (Ex.: FEDEX®, UPSĀ®, etc.).

A number of exemptions are included in the statute:
