Linking technology news with Dangerous Goods compliance
As organizations continue to adapt to changes in the supply chain due to the global pandemic and plan for the “new normal,” technology will no doubt be a big part of it. This is especially true when it comes to managing dangerous goods.
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.
Let’s examine the recent supply chain technology and industry news.
- Amazon Supply Chain Innovation Continues: Amazon’s operations and technology have evolved over the last three years, with a focus on its trucking, warehousing and air capabilities. How does each of these drive the Amazon supply chain?
- Back to Basics: Fundamentals for Supply Chain Digitization: Only by first digitizing fundamental supply chain processes with proven, scalable systems will businesses then be able to build digital competencies and explore how more advanced technologies can support their operations.
- Data and Analytics to Become ‘Core Business Function’ in 2021: Data and analytics will morph into a core business function in 2021 as companies infuse these capabilities into current practices, according to Gartner.
- Oracle Introduces New Updates to its Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing Offering: Oracle introduced new updates to its Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM) offering, which connects shippers’ supply networks with an integrated suite of cloud business applications.
- Why Your Product Data Must Be Intelligently Stored and Organized: If your business ships hundreds or thousands of packages a day, you’ll be far more efficient – and profitable – if your commodity data is intelligently stored and organized.
- Leading-edge Tech for Contingency Planning and Staying Competitive: Contingency planning and business continuity are top of mind for supply chain decision-makers. Here are the latest logistics technology advancements that are supporting shippers with contingency planning and giving them a competitive advantage.
- The 3PL Robot Dilemma: The pandemic-fueled surge in e-commerce is leading to a rise in 3PL activity. While e-com is well suited to warehouse automation, are 3PLs making the most of its potential?
- The Digitization of Freight Logistics: Acting as intermediaries and the theoretical sales and marketing arm for carriers, today’s brokers and 3PLs have put more focus on building relationships and analyzing data to keep freight moving.
- 3PL Summit: Refocusing Software on the Customer Experience: A lack of visibility is really a symptom of a larger problem supply chains face: manual, analog processes. Supply chains must be digitally transformed to address the visibility symptom — putting the supply chain at the heart of customer experience.
Technology & Dangerous Goods Compliance
Dangerous goods (DG) professionals helped keep the global supply chains moving during the global pandemic, but there are still questions around the “new normal.” How will a recovery impact your DG operations? In what areas of your supply chain are most and least confident?
Now is your chance to share your input, and even influence the direction of your entire industry, by participating in the 6th Annual DG Global Confidence Outlook.
A collaborative effort created by Labelmaster, Hazardous Cargo Bulletin (HCB) and IATA, the DG Global Confidence Outlook is the definitive survey of the DG industry, examining the challenges and attitudes of DG pros about DG supply chain management. This year, we’ll be taking stock of the DG landscape after a year of dealing with a global pandemic.
- How has COVID-19 changed the industry’s priorities?
- Has your organization made the right moves to stay competitive?
- Are your training, technology and overall compliance a sound foundation for future growth in “the new normal”?
“By participating in this survey, DG pros get a voice to possibly make changes in the industry and perhaps within your company,” says Labelmaster Vice President Rob Finn. “The results of this survey get real visibility with global regulatory bodies like PHMSA and IATA, and the data has helped DG pros move the needle with their organizations on how they view DG management.”
We need your input! Please take a few minutes to add your voice to the 6th annual DG Global Confidence Outlook! Your responses are anonymous, and we’ll share the results in about six weeks.
