Extremely Dangerous: Confidence is in Short Supply

DG/hazmat shipping compliance is critical to the supply chain, but organizations often lack the infrastructure to keep pace with today’s changing compliance and risk mitigation landscape.

DG/Hazmat Compliance Becoming More Difficult

TRUTH IN NUMBERS

According to a Labelmaster Industry Compliance Confidence Survey, a large number of companies are not confident in their ability to be consistently compliant across their entire supply chain.

What is the Root Cause of This Uncertantity

Senior Levels

Lack of Focus at Senior Levels

Compliance is often not a high priority for companies because it is not deemed important to its core business, or they simply do not have the infrastructure needed to create a culture of compliance. And this lack of focus starts at the top.

C-suite

Training

OVER 70%

believe their company’s training and operations budget for hazmat compliance is not forward-thinking—with over 10% saying it is behind today’s requirements.

NEARLY 30%

believe their companies do not have the infrastructure in place to provide real-time instruction and processes across their organization as well as with business partners.

Simply Meeting Today's Requirements is not Enough

In fact, 77% believe

the technology in place is not forward-thinking—with 13% claiming their technology is behind today’s requirements.

This Lack of Investment in Forward-Thinking Technology Could in part be due to Internal IT Restraints
39%

believe

their company’s IT department does not have capacity to focus on the technology to support hazmat compliance.

Compliance Responsibility Shifts

Shifts
Compliance challenges are compounded by responsibility shifts within many organizations. While historically managed by a single department, hazmat compliance now often involves multiple divisions—creating a lack of clarity on “ownership” of compliance.

OSHA and DOT

Infrasturcture and Technology
