Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance

Supply chain issues continue to be a major challenge for businesses across most industries. Along with those problems comes an increased focus on solutions – from automation and collaboration to inventory management and transportation mode shifts. 

Let’s examine some recent industry news.


  • Driving Supply Chain Automation: Automation can be particularly useful in helping organizations gain efficiencies and fill gaps when short staffed or up again supply constraints that impact productivity.  


  • Consider the compliance factor. New systems, processes and partners will affect your compliance operations and cannot be overlooked. Changing your DG compliance processes may be necessary – both to ensure compliance for every shipment but also to support broader enterprise investments or initiatives. For example, implementing warehouse technology while relying on manual processes for DG compliance will hinder your organization’s overall automation efforts. 
  •  Take a holistic approach. Organizations cannot afford to have an incomplete and siloed view of compliance, which touches all areas of the supply chain. Understand the role of compliance in your operations and identify any existing gaps that put your supply chain at risk. Then identify what DG-specific solutions and process changes are needed to address short-term and long-term needs. 
  • Compliance is easier than you may think. The good news is that DG management improvements are easier than you might think. Your organization likely already has the product and shipping information and the workforce it needs. Investing in DG technology, and then integrating it into your other systems and processes, will further enhance your automation and compliance efforts and ultimately allow you to reduce operating costs while maintaining supply chain integrity and protecting your employees, customers and business.
