Linking technology news with Dangerous Goods compliance

Automation continues to drive the supply chain forward…and will become an increasingly important focus moving forward. What does this mean for dangerous goods companies?

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


  • Top Tips for Automating Your Manufacturing Processes: If you are considering automating aspects of your production processes, it’s worth learning what works and what does not from those who have been there before. Here are tips to get started on the right foot with your automation projects.


  • Automation is a top priority. Organizations are increasingly turning to automation technologies to help drive efficiency, streamline operations and increase profitability. But, for many, outdated business processes and manual operations continue to be a challenge.
  • Don’t forget about DG. Simply using supply chain technology won’t automatically improve dangerous goods operations. Most TMS, ERP, WMS or OMS solutions aren’t built with hazmat as their main focus and, therefore, lack the necessary functionality. And using warehouse robots can speed up fulfillment but won’t improve DG management or compliance. Shippers should consider utilizing dedicated DG shipping software to automate the process and provide the functionality businesses truly need to automate and compliantly manage DG shipping.
  • True automation requires integration. A lack of visibility and communication remains a roadblock to creating a seamless, digital supply chain for many organizations. To truly optimize DG shipping operations and drive real business value, companies must successfully integrate compliance with the rest of their operations and systems (ERP, TMS, WMS, etc.). And because data is stored — and therefore maintained — in a single location, all stakeholders are working with accurate, up-to-date information, so there is no wasted time or effort-related to reentering data in multiple systems or learning how to use multiple interfaces.
