Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance

Inflation, surging diesel prices, high shipping costs and more are impacting businesses around the world, including those shipping dangerous goods.

Let’s examine some recent industry news.



  • Noncompliance can be costly. Costs resulting from noncompliance can add up – from fees related to stopped shipments and carrier fines to increased insurance liability following an accident. Small errors in labeling and documentation often result in civil penalties which, if repeated, can add up to significant losses, while other violations carry stiffer penalties – up to $84,485 for certain violations of U.S. hazardous materials transportation.
  • Compliance is more than avoiding fines. Better compliance processes not only help avoid fines, but it also helps organizations maintain lean and efficient operations. Access to important master data and regulatory information can help organizations identify cost-effective solutions to ensure they’re not spending more than necessary on packaging or protection of goods, while still maintaining compliance.
  • Compliance is more than a cost center. Compliance plays a role in every part of the supply chain and must be considered as businesses make changes to their operations to reduce costs, drive efficiencies, meet customer demands and more. Automating DG shipment compliance and validation can help establish repeatable and reliable processes across the supply chain and drive a positive financial and operational impact.
