Linking supply chain news with dangerous goods compliance
Disruptions are just a fact of life in the supply chain, and they continue to emerge – whether due to droughts, hurricanes, supplier issues or outdated systems. That’s why it’s important for organizations to be prepared for when they arise.
Let’s examine some recent industry news on how to navigate supply chain disruptions.

- Be proactive. Supply chain disruptions continue to emerge and put pressure on businesses across all industries. Organizations need to proactively invest in the processes and infrastructure to help create a resilient supply chain that allows them to adapt when disruptions arise. For DG organizations, there are processes and requirements that must be considered that other shippers may not face – from hazmat training to specialized packaging to compliant shipping processes.
- Avoid self-created disruptions. Businesses can’t control bad weather, capacity constraints or labor shortages, but they can avoid snags due to poor DG management processes or compliance errors. Having effective DG shipping processes and systems in place, such as DG shipping software, can help organizations establish repeatable, reliable processes across all locations and maintain fast, efficient and compliant operations.
- Business continuity is essential. Establishing repeatable, tech-enabled processes lets organizations better establish business continuity across their organizations and allows them to ship DG from multiple locations. This not only helps ensure consistent compliance across locations that regularly ship DG but provides flexibility to shift DG processes and shipping to other locations when customer demands change or disruptions arise.
