What could the following possibly have in common?

In fact, the use of this jargon, mandated by many national and international authorities like the United Nations, makes regulatory compliance and safe transportation extremely uncertain. Existing references provide little help. Even the regulations supply only a limited number of descriptions of the terms. Glossary for the Worldwide Transportation of Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Materials finally provides accurate, clear explanations of the terms used in worldwide transportation of hazardous materials. Written by a leading environmental and transportation consultant and educator, it is the principal reference for all shippers and transporters involved in the identification of dangerous goods and hazardous materials - the basis of all subsequent transportation requirements.
