The FAA has proposed seven civil penalties amounting to $455,000 against cargo airline DHL Express for allegedly violating hazardous materials regulations.

The regulator alleged that the Florida-based carrier accepted cargos that were not sufficiently prepared for air transportation while failing to ensure its staff had received compulsory hazardous materials training.

According to the FAA, the incidents allegedly took place from December 2013 to September 2014 and all shipments were discovered during inspections at the DHL Express package sorting facility in Kentucky.

DHL Express has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the cases.
