Snapshot - The Air Cargo Supply Chain, Part 2
The strain on the air cargo supply chain shows no signs of letting up—especially with the peak holiday season upon us. Demand is accelerating, and capacities are not limitless. What’s the answer?
According to air cargo specialist James Wyatt, Dangerous Goods compliance plays a key role in helping the industry maximize its capacity. “Compliance is absolutely key to ensure that shipments are checked in accordance with the regulations and that they fly as booked within the capacity space that they have been allocated.”
HazMatters spoke with Wyatt for a special, two-part podcast. In part 1, James shared his unique insight into the remarkable performance of the air cargo supply chain.
In part 2, he stresses the need for all shippers—from the largest to the smallest—to prioritize Dangerous Goods compliance for their own benefit, as well as for the health of the entire supply chain.
“It's not just about the cost of packaging, marking, labeling, buying a regulations every year, training your staff—it's about keeping the supply chain secure and safe and that’s the ultimate goal.”
