This Thanksgiving, DG also stands for “Deepest Gratitude.”

We know lots of Dangerous Goods professionals are on vacation this week, but the supply chain never takes a holiday. That’s why we’d like to take a few moments to share our thanks for everyone who helps keep our highways, skies, rails and oceans safe.

Thank you to the truckers, pilots, train drivers and others who transport more than 1.4 million hazmat shipments every day.

Thank you to the carriers and their dedicated teams who make sure all that hazmat is properly documented, packaged, placarded, labeled, marked, loaded and handled.

Thank you to the e-commerce entrepreneurs who have made today’s supply chain such a dynamic, growing industry.

Thank you to the third-party logistics companies who somehow connect all those carriers and businesses efficiently and compliantly.

Thank you to the regulators at PHMSA, at OSHA, at FAA and FMCSA, plus IATA, ICAO, IMO and dozens of other bodies. You walk a tightrope everyday — you demonstrate amazing dexterity by doing an astonishing amount of work to fairly balance industry’s needs with public safety.

Thank you to the hazmat trainers who make sure everyone who handles Dangerous Goods knows what to do (and what not to do) to keep the supply chain safe.

Thank you to the EH&S experts who, despite the presence of explosives, flammables and every conceivable type of poison, keep our workplaces safe.

Thank you to our partners at IATA and HCB, who make the Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook the definitive annual source of insight into the hazmat supply chain.

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2021 Dangerous Goods Symposium, a virtual two-weekoverload of Dangerous Goods expertise and insight (which you can still stream for free, one session at a time). We can’t wait to see you all—in person and together—for three amazing days next September 7-9!

Finally, thank you to all our customers. Knowing you trust us to help you grow your business compliantly fills us with the Deepest Gratitude.
