DG Office - Fast, legally compliant, cost-efficient

Electronic tools and solutions for your Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Materials related activities

Efreight AG has further expanded the functionality of its digital logistics platform through a cooperation with the DGM Software Development Group. Dangerous goods declarations can now be created electronically and added directly to the consignment data via www.efreight.ch.

The Swiss B2B transaction and information exchange platform for national and international freight transport, www.efreight.ch has expanded its range of services. Shippers can now use the app "DG Office" to electronically identify dangerous goods classes. The software also provides support for correct legal, packaging and labeling regulations for all modes of transport and all countries worldwide and to digitally issue the necessary dangerous goods declarations. Subsequently, the transport documents listing the technical name of the goods, their classification, quantity and type of packaging are added to the shipment data on the efreight platform via a link.

The software solutions developed by the Dutch DGM Software Development Group are based on a continuously updated database. Using "DG Office" freight forwarders can support their customers and employees of industrial and commercial companies can create the documents required for transporting dangerous goods faster and flawlessly.

 

 

Electronically all the way

DG Office / e-freight also allows digital processing of the so-called "Responsible Declaration" in which the sender assures that the goods are properly classified, packaged and labeled. Package certificates confirming that only undamaged packages have been stowed in the container, packed only compatible goods and properly secured in the container, can be added to the shipment data on the efreight platform.

In the course of the growing digitization of the economy, the importance of exchange platforms (à la efreight platform) is increasing. As a central data warehouse they can connect several groups / partners, thus creating a digital network. This can significantly reduce transaction costs compared to traditional business relationships with paper-based work processes.

Convincing advantages

With the help of the new "DG Office" app, shippers can avoid eliminate errors when completing dangerous goods declarations and when shipping dangerous goods. This will prevent penalties and / or shipping delays. Risks in supply chain management are reduced. At the same time, process efficiency and compliance increase when all steps along the transport chain, including hazardous goods declarations, are consistently mapped electronically.

The highly efficient DG Office solution enables users of the efreight platform to significantly increase the number of dangerous goods declarations per employee. The employees then have more time to spend more time on complex and risky dangerous goods shipments.

However, users of the efreight platform can also add a paper dangerous goods declaration to the shipment data as a PDF scan.
