Labelmaster, the leading provider of labels, packaging and technology for the safe and compliant transport of dangerous goods and hazardous materials (hazmat), today announced the integration of its Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS) with Pando’s transportation management system (TMS). The partnership provides a seamless, integrated solution for planning and executing the shipment of dangerous goods and ensure compliance with global shipping regulations. 

Headquartered in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Pando helps businesses digitize monitor and optimize supply chain operations. Through a networked TMS, Pando helps enterprises of all sizes automate and manage their transportation planning and execution and connect to logistics vendors through a central control tower. Integrating DGIS into Pando’s TMS offers a seamless solution for managing the entire DG shipping process – from selecting packaging and labels to creating and printing documents.

“Shippers around the world are looking for out-of-the-box solutions for managing freight but, many of the transportation management systems lack the necessary DG management capabilities,” said Ashok Vasan, president and chief revenue officer, Pando. “By integrating DGIS with Pando’s TMS, we can now give our customers access to best-in-class DG shipping software, on a single integrated interface.”

Pando’s TMS will now allow shippers to access up-to-date hazmat tables, compliant shipping papers and more. DGIS also validates all DG data against the latest rules and regulations, reducing the chance for a rejected shipment or fines due to noncompliance, and helping maintain a smooth supply chain.

“Shipping dangerous goods involves complex rules and regulations but, unfortunately, the process is often highly manual, and can be cumbersome to manage and update and highly prone to errors,” said Alan Schoen, president, Labelmaster. “Integrating the two systems enables organizations to automate and streamline their shipping processes by providing all of the necessary DG shipping forms and rules within the Pando TMS. Pando customers can be confident that their shipments are compliant with the latest regulations and reduce the risk on supply chain delays and expense.”
