Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance

It’s both an exciting and challenging time in the automotive industry as businesses are driving innovation forward while dealing with parts shortages and supply chain challenges.  

Let’s examine some recent industry news.


  • Two Years that Changed the Auto Industry: It’s just over two years ago that the WHO declared that Covid-19 had pandemic status. Here’s how the unprecedented public health crisis has changed the automotive industry. 


  • DG is everywhere in the auto industry. Many automotive components are regulated hazardous materials – from airbags and engines to paint, fuel and lithium batteries. It’s important for automotive companies to know which items are classified as hazmat and then stay up-to-date latest rules and regulations and understand the impact they have on their supply chain operations.  
  • EV market growth brings more logistics challenges. The growing electric vehicle market presents additional supply chain compliance challenges. Particularly, because EVs run on large-format lithium-ion batteries, which are fully regulated hazmat and add another level of complexity and risk due to their size and power. This is especially true when shipping damaged, defective or recalled batteries.  
  • Align compliance processes with industry changes. DG regulations are in place to ensure safety for employees, the public and the environment, and will continue to change along with the changing auto industry. To keep pace, auto manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and supply chain partners much also evolve their compliance practices to ensure compliance and position themselves to meet customer demand.
