[post_content] => Digitisation in the dangerous goods supply chain is beginning to pick up steam. With more than 1.4m shipments of hazardous materials (hazmat) every day in the US alone, a more streamlined process has been needed for some time now. ProShip Inc, a Neopost company that already offers digitised systems for general goods, has announced a new partnership with Labelmaster, a leading provider of labels, packaging and technology for the safe and compliant transport of dangerous goods. The new partnership, using ProShip’s Multi-Carrier Shipping Software, will allow dangerous goods shippers to access up-to-date hazmat tables, carry out robust validation checks and generate compliant shipping papers.
“Hazmat compliance can be an intimidating and confusing undertaking,” says Matt Mullen, senior vice-president and managing director of ProShip. “In a recent survey, 65 per cent of respondents said that keeping up with changing regulations was one of their greatest challenges. ProShip’s partnership with Labelmaster alleviates that challenge and helps our customers meet delivery promises without delay. It is our responsibility to give our customers the framework that helps realise a positive return on investment from their hazmat shipping function, and Labelmaster helps us do that. We are thrilled to continuously add new features that keep our customers confident in their shipping strategies, no matter what they ship.”
Beyond explosives, corrosives and other flammable or radioactive materials, dangerous goods classification encompasses an array of everyday items including electronics, medical devices and even power tools. As regulations for shipping these items continue to expand and become more complex, companies that ship hazardous materials face greater risk for non-compliance, including stopped shipments, supply chain delays and fines. ProShip’s software provides a fully integrated, automated and manifesting solution with the most certified carrier compliant services on the market, according to the company.
“Labelmaster’s Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS) is updated as regulations change,” says Alan Schoen, president of Labelmaster. “The system validates the originator’s shipments against them, providing guidance on packaging, labelling and the filling out and printing of Shipper Declarations. This partnership will give ProShip customers the benefit of easier and more reliable hazmat shipping, all within one system.”
The shipping software encompasses a variety of management solutions, including warehouse and transport management. Warehouse management software provides support for day-to-day warehouse operations, enabling centralisation of tasks such as tracking inventory levels and stock locations. The transport management solution plans freight movements, freight rating and shopping across all modes, while also selecting optimal routes and carriers.
ProShip says its partnership with Labelmaster represents a significant step forward in the optimisation of shipping operations and carrier compliance. By bringing multi-carrier shipping software into the mix, companies are able to take the complexity out of this fast-growing market and create a smarter environment for its customers.
ProShip is a global provider of logistics software and product solutions, including enterprise-wide, multi-carrier shipping and manifesting software, automated packing solutions and intelligent parcel lockers. The company’s solutions enable goods to be delivered faster, more efficiently and more cost-effectively than ever possible. Labelmaster is a go-to source for companies that operate in the transport of dangerous goods. The company manufactures hazmat labels and UN certified packaging, as well as hazmat placards and regulatory publications, aimed at helping customers to remain complaint with all dangerous goods regulations and mitigate risk.
