Shipping Radioactive Freight

Recently, there was a bit of a nuclear alert scare on a vessel in Halifax. There was a possibly radiation leak on this ship from a container after 4 canisters of the material fell 20 feet. The substance in question was uranium hexafluoride and the carrier was the Atlantic Container Line (ACL). First responders rushed to the ship to conduct inspections and examinations. After some time, the first responders found that no substance spilled, there was no damage and no one was contaminated or injured.
