The Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook
The definitive outlook for the DG industry
Shipping dangerous goods (DG) is complex and high risk, and those responsible for compliance have an increasingly critical (and difficult) job. In an effort to better understand today's dangerous goods landscape, Labelmaster, partnered with International
Air Transport Association (IATA) and Hazardous Cargo Bulletin to survey DG professionals around the world about how their organizations approach DG shipping and handling and the specific compliance challenges they face.
Each year, this survey takes the pulse of the professionals who keep the hazmat supply chain compliant. It examines challenges with supply chain partners, global harmonization, data and technology. The results not only provide insights into the global DG landscape, but helps DG pros secure the support they need from their organizations to make compliance and safety a top priority.
Please take a few minutes to be part of the definitive outlook for the worldwide DG industry.
Each year's survey has focused on different aspects of DG life from the past twelve months, as well as historical trends. Take a look at the past years results.
