Certain hazardous materials must be separated from each other during transportation in a manner that prevents commingling if a package failure or leakage were to occur. The segregation requirements for highway hazmat shipments are contained in Section 177.848 of the HMR. These requirements apply only to the Hazard Classes and Divisions listed in the HMR's Segregation Table and only if the materials are in packages that require labeling or placarding, a compartment within a cargo tank, or a portable tank loaded in a container or vehicle.
