Linking technology news with Dangerous Goods compliance

2020 is here and technology is poised to continue transforming the supply chain. This is especially true for dangerous goods shippers as they much adapt to the continued growth of e-commerce, evolving consumer demands, increasing regulations and much more.

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 weekly report linking the latest technology news to dangerous goods compliance.

Let’s examine the recent supply chain technology and industry news.


  • How Blockchain Tech is Solving Problems in the Supply Chain Sector: The supply chain industry is challenged with massive amounts of data that’s often siloed, hard to access or difficult to analyze. But there’s good news: even the most basic applications of blockchain technology could significantly increase productivity and profitability.


Technology & Dangerous Goods Compliance

As a new year (and a new decade) begins, companies are examining the trends and technologies that will impact their businesses (and their entire industry) moving forward. This is especially true in the supply chain industry, which has been transformed in recent years due to changes, and brought with it a new whole set of challenges.

In a recent article, Locus CEO and founder Nishith Rastogi notes, “Technological advancements have strengthened the capabilities and functioning of every element of logistics, right from packaging and labeling to shipment, transportation and last-mile delivery. Changes in consumer demands, the rise of e-commerce and fierce market competition have also enabled a rapid transformation of the industry.”

He goes on to highlight several trends and technologies that will shape the future of logistics in 2020 and beyond, including artificial intelligence, real-time visibility chain and 3PL collaboration. He adds “Digitization and technology advancements will continue to redefine the supply chain and logistics landscape in 2020 and the years to come, streamlining every activity and transforming the way goods travel worldwide.”

In order to drive meaningful value from emerging technologies, and remain competitive in an ever-changing and complex market landscape, companies can’t overlook critical parts of their supply chain operations. Specifically, dangerous goods compliance, which impacts packaging, labeling, documentation, carrier selection, 3PL partnerships and much more. Plus, it’s only becoming more challenging as regulations continue to change and expand, and can have upstream and downstream effects on your supply chain.

If companies want to streamline operations, meet changing customer demands, improve collaboration and maximize their technology investment in 2020 and beyond, they have to make DG compliance part of their overall supply chain and technology adoption strategy.
