3M transport information is based on an 11-digit 3M ID number. The 3M ID represents a specific product in a specific package size. Transport information for the same product in a different size may vary, therefore, it is important to know the size of the product to determine the correct 3M ID to use for searching. Transport information is displayed for multiple regulatory agencies; for hazardous material, transport information can and often does vary by agency.
Searching by 3M ID is the quickest way to access transport information. The product 3M ID numbers are found on product packaging. 3M ID numbers beginning with 34 are the 3M ID numbers for the packaging itself; they are not the 3M ID for the product.
