Send samples and necessary documents to Miami
Please send your samples under the guidelines of “De Minimis Shipping” and email us the courier and tracking number.
Samples need to be shipped directly to the lab in Miami because Beta’s international forwarding facilities are not equipped to handle biofuels. Please send to:

4985 SW 74th Court
Miami, Florida 33155
To prevent shipping clearance delays, please use our recommended customs declaration – “Biofuel samples for scientific analysis – NO COMMERCIAL VALUE – Destroyed during analysis”.
Customs and carriage value: 1 USD
Harmonized Tariff Number (HS code) – 280300
De Minimis Shipping – Hazardous substances with International Air Transport Association (IATA) Excepted Quantity Codes E1, E2, E4 or E5 and those in Packing Groups II and III qualify for De Minimis shipping. To ship as De Minimis to our Miami office, the sample volume must not exceed 1 mL and the packaging must follow the guidelines in the Dangerous Goods Regulations, being sufficiently absorbent in case of leakage and sturdy enough to prevent breakage. No special labelling is required for De Minimis shipping. For detailed information, please consult the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.
When sending samples directly to the US, please make sure that the shipping company you choose takes full responsibility to clear the package with US customs. You are welcome to contact us for shipping advice.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING OUR COMMITMENT TO PROMISED DELIVERY AND ASSOCIATED ANALYTICAL COSTS – Analyses are started immediately upon receipt of samples to best ensure we meet our promised delivery.
