August 18, 2020 | Last week Labelmaster announced the launch of the DG Exchange—the dangerous goods industry’s first digital community. The DG Exchange brings together supply chain and business professionals to share ideas, learn, and collaborate in order to navigate dangerous goods issues, challenges and trends—empowering them to positively impact their businesses. The community offers opportunities to access insightful content and share resources, attend educational events and training sessions, and engage with peers through open forums and other networking opportunities.
“Shipping Dangerous Goods is complex and high risk, leaving professionals at various levels of organizations looking for information, searching to find answers to questions or simply trying to stay on top of the latest trends, challenges and regulatory changes,” said Robert Finn, vice president of marketing & product management, Labelmaster in the announcement. “The DG Exchange is a one-of-a-kind place where the entire supply chain can exchange ideas and information related to hazmat in order to improve supply chain performance, compliance, safety and profitability.”
The DG Exchange was created for anyone involved in the dangerous goods supply chain, the company says. Whether your organization ships dangerous goods daily or only ships a few packages a year, the DG Exchange is a place where professionals at all levels of the organization can come to better understand the complex world of dangerous goods. In addition, organizations can gain valuable information, insights, and connections to enhance business performance, improve operations, drive revenue and more. The DG Exchange provides a range of opportunities for members to engage, learn, and connect around the key trends and challenges impacting the dangerous goods industry. It includes:
- Groups: Discover resources, members, events and conversations centered on key dangerous goods topics—regulations, training, lithium batteries, technology in the supply chain and supply chain management.
- Events: Attend live virtual events throughout the year or view on-demand webinars on a wide range of supply chain topics.
- Resources: Access articles, blog posts, infographics, podcasts and more to stay up-to-date on the latest DG issues, trends and best practices.
- Forums: Engage with other members by asking questions and participating in ongoing discussions about specific hazmat-related topics.
- Member Directory: Find and connect with community members located in specific regions of the world, who have specific areas of expertise or similar job roles or focus areas.
Finn added, “The community is special because it’s the individuals involved in the dangerous goods supply chain who are driving discussions, sharing insightful content and collaborating with each other. As the community grows, so too will the industry topics that are covered, the resource content being shared and the volume of peers around the world with whom to connect. Ultimately, the community will provide the opportunity for members to better navigate critical dangerous goods issues and positively impact their businesses.”
