Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance
Data has become one of the most important assets in the supply chain. An organization’s ability to access, analyze and use this information will be key in determining its success moving forward.
Let’s examine some recent ways the industry is leveraging data to innovate supply chains.

- Mastering data is a need, not a want. Shipping and handling DG will become even more challenging as supply chains become more complex, more items become classified as dangerous, and regulations continue to emerge and change. It has also become even more data-driven. Having complete, accurate master data will be key to streamlining compliant hazmat transport and unlocking efficiencies across all the locations and departments in your organization.
- Start with the basics. Effective DG management begins with knowing what kind of shipments you’re processing. A product’s components, makeup, dimensions and origins impact every process required for safe and compliant DG shipping – including packaging, labeling, documentation, permits and transport of goods – so access to master data is critical in setting your DG supply chain operations up for success.
- Don’t keep data siloed. Having complete, accurate master data is key to streamlining compliant hazmat transport and unlocking efficiencies across your supply chain. But to be truly effective that data must be shared across all locations and departments in your organization and with your partners. Don’t just assume everyone has access to important information or knows how to handle DG shipments, even if they have warehousing or shipping software in place.
