As more goods are being purchased online, shippers are being forced to adapt to new challenges, or finally address previously ignored gaps within their supply chains.

To help companies keep a pulse on technology trends impacting business and the movement of dangerous goods throughout the supply chain, Labelmaster has launched “Supply Chain Moves,” a bi-weekly report linking the latest technology news to dangerous goods compliance.

Technology & Dangerous Goods Compliance

The e-commerce market continues to thrive and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. As more consumers shop online, shippers need to be aware of the ramifications for any dangerous goods (DG) shipments they may now be processing or are processing unsafely or incorrectly.

The foundation for understanding the implications that DG shipping may bring starts with understanding dangerous goods themselves, and what regulatory requirements may apply. Only then can shippers take a more strategic approach to DG management.

In a recent ProShip ParcelCast episode, ProShip’s Justin Cramer and Clint Boaz and Labelmaster’s Kristen Dapore examine current DG shipping trends and challenges, including how to classify them, how to store the related data, how to safely execute a shipment and why automating that process is so important and advantageous to your business.

A key component to efficient and compliant DG shipping is automation. DG shipping can be a complex and time-consuming process and, as a result, inefficiencies, errors and delays can likely be found across each supply chain partner. Utilizing DG shipping software can help automate and streamline the process by providing instant, accurate and compliant DG shipping documentation while validating shipments against the latest regulations.

In addition to automating shipping processes, utilizing DG shipping technology helps organizations have more complete and accurate master data. And without proper data, no technology can work to its fullest potential.
