Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance

Attention to safe and responsible supply chain practices has increased in recent years. Whether shipping lithium batteries, chemicals or some other dangerous good, it’s important to understand the risk and take steps to ensure compliance.  

Let’s examine some recent developments in the EV battery market.


  • Automating the Hazardous Materials Supply Chain: While organizations are constantly investing in automation to cope with numerous systemic stress factors, they often overlook one facet of automation that can help or hinder their success: dangerous goods automation. 


  • Don’t overlook compliance. Dangerous goods have the potential to impact public safety and the environment and, as a result, brand equity. Unfortunately, organizations often put their operational efficiency, competitive agility, reputation and bottom line at risk by ignoring the necessary technology and training in place to ensure compliance. 
  • Address your compliance gaps. For years, DG pros have reported key gaps within organizations’ supply chain processes and infrastructure that has made maintaining a compliant and reliable hazmat supply chain challenging. According to the 2022 Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook, the areas that are the most problematic: automating processes, harmonizing processes across the supply chain, and accessing complete and accurate data.  
  • Establish compliant shipping processes. Establishing repeatable and reliable operations helps enable faster shipping processes while also helping ensure regulatory compliance for every shipment, across all locations. This can be enhanced through automation by validating orders against the latest regulations and driving efficiencies for repetitive shipments from the same or multiple facilities.
