Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook
The 7th Annual Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook is Sponsored by Labelmaster, IATA, and Hazardous Cargo Bulletin.
The seventh annual Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook (2022) is the definitive outlook for the worldwide dangerous goods industry based on the thoughts and attitudes of DG pros across the globe. You can also review the results from previous Global DG Confidence Outlook reports.
Listen in as a panel of DG veterans including Pia Jala, Geoff Leach, David Brennan, Peter Mackay and Shane Kelley discuss the most interesting and insightful views from this year's Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook Survey, taken by nearly 1,000 DG Pros from around the world!
Global supply chain disruptions have put even more pressure on an already challenging Dangerous Goods industry. To better understand the current DG landscape, Labelmaster, IATA and HCB surveyed 439 DG pros around the globe to gain insight into:
How companies approach DG management
How their DG operations changed over the past year
Which compliance areas are most problematic
SOME IMPROVEMENT IN DG OPERATIONS
Despite the supply chain challenges impacting the industry, many organizations improved their DG operations over the past year. However, there was no change (and even decline) for many.
Here’s where large numbers of DG pros reported improvement...
... and where they reported no change.
THERE WAS ALSO IMPROVEMENT IN COMPLIANCE INVESTMENT:
A 35% jump in organizations that increased their DG investment year-over-year.
But there's still work to do to meet the complexities of future needs.
|Believe their infrastructure|
is not ready to meet future needs
|Say their organization’s DG investment|
cannot support future regulations
or supply chain changes
COMPLIANCE CHALLENGES REMAIN
While organizations improved in some areas, challenges still exist across many aspects of DG management.
What do DG pros find most problematic?
Getting accurate and reliable data can also be difficult.
Barely one quarter said they received accurate, complete safety data sheets (SDS) from partners.
The Result: Difficulty complying with some DG transport rules.
And almost one-third do not trust most of their locations to ship DG efficiently and reliably.
HANDLING LITHIUM BATTERIES?
You’re not alone. 64% of DG pros deal with them – and many say aspects of managing them are problematic.
REGULATIONS: PRINT OR DIGITAL?
While DG pros strongly prefer to access regulations via digital channels...
... almost 1/3 still hold out for printed books. Here’s why:
THE COMPLIANCE ROADMAP
As supply chains evolve and regulations expand, organizations can make hazmat compliance a competitive edge by improving their infrastructure and processes. The good news is that meaningful improvements don’t have to be difficult or costly. Here are just a few options:
Automate DG operations with repeatable and reliable processes by integrating DG software with your ERP or other systems.
Use gamification or 3D training experiences to better engage employees.
Deploy innovative packaging solutions to improve efficiency, safety and compliance throughout the supply chain.
Keep your employees and supply chain partners up to date using digital materials.
