Technology & Dangerous Goods Compliance
E-commerce is booming. According to ACI Worldwide, global e-commerce sales rose 28% in June, marking the largest year-over-year increase since the beginning of the pandemic. And it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
This presents tremendous growth opportunities for many organizations. For some, it may also require further investment in technology and automation, as Konstantin Bohmeyer pointed out in her recent Supply & Demand Chain Executive article. Not only can technology make the supply chain faster and more efficient, as Bohmeyer highlights in her article, it can also open the door to shipping more types of products – specifically hazmat.
Shipping dangerous goods is complex and complicated, so some companies shy away from these items. Yet there are customers who want to receive these products, and your competition is shipping to them compliantly every day.
But what if you could use a tested, accepted, and easy-to-use software solution that made shipping hazmat simple, how much additional revenue could your operation make? That’s the basis of the new DGIS Challenge, where you can feed numbers from your operation into a simple calculator to see how hazmat software can help you execute more hazmat shipments every day.
Automating the hazmat shipping process and better ensure compliance and open the door to significant possibilities in the types of products you ship, how you ship them and how your supply chain network operates. This can help unlock hidden demand and revenue for your organization. Ask yourself:
- If you added new offerings without worrying about the added complexity, how much additional revenue could your operation make?
- If you shipped DG from each of your locations, every day, how much additional revenue could your operation make?
- If you felt comfortable shipping DG by air as well as ground, how much additional revenue could your operation make?
