News Brief: IATA Launches EasyDGR - Online solution for dangerous goods shippers
Montreal – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced today the official release of EasyDGR, a complete online integrated application for shipping dangerous goods by air in compliance with industry regulations.
This customizable solution allows shippers of hazardous materials to create an electronically validated Dangerous Goods Declaration (DGD), increasing safety, saving time, streamlining operations and reducing the chance that the shipment will be rejected by the carrier. Safety is aviation’s number one priority, and this innovative solution will help to increase safety through streamlined processes across the entire supply chain.
EasyDGR also solves one of the biggest problems for shippers: creating accurate documentation for dangerous goods shipments to meet airline compliance requirements and avoid rejected shipments. Industry estimates say as many as 60% of dangerous goods shipments rejected by airlines are due to mistakes in the documentation – a costly problem for the entire supply chain.
This web-based solution features built-in intelligence to validate information for the DGD in real time, virtually eliminating mistakes. It also offers quick search access to IATA’s complete Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and other reference material. The smart system generates all required document outputs, including XML format that is IATA e-freight ready. The EasyDGR platform simplifies the business of shiping dangerous goods by air with the capability to deliver massive volumes of data to tens of thousands of customers with a user-friendly interface.
EasyDGR was created with the cooperation with the International Civil Aviation Organization and is developed and hosted by InfoTrustGroup.
