Case Study: A shipper in the Middle East shipped dental supplies to Sydney, Australia through the postal system. Included in the dental supplies was approximately 100 mls of mercury. During air transport, the glass container holding the mercury broke and leaked into the cargo hold. Fortunately, it was discovered before it could cause significant damage to the skin of the aircraft. However, the leak required significant clean-up costs.
