Logistics e-platform augments portfolio
www.efreight.ch, a Swiss B2B transaction and information platform for domestic and international freight transport, has augmented its service portfolio. Consignors are now able to use the new DG Office app to determine hazmat goods classes and digitally prepare the requisite hazmat goods declaration forms, as well as the legal, packaging and labelling regulations for all transport modes and countries.
The transport documents containing the goods’ technical names, their hazmat class, the amount and type of packaging can then be added to the shipment data by means of link to the e-freight platform.
Consignors can also use the new app to either avoid or spot errors and rule them out when completing hazmat goods declaration forms and shipping the goods. This prevents fines and/or forwarding delays, and reduce risks along the supply chain.
At the same time, process efficiency and compliance improves when all steps along the supply chain, including hazmat goods declarations, are carried out electronically. (mw)
