DG AutoCheck

​​Our new dangerous goods acceptance check validation tool takes all the regulations, rules, best practices and guidance contained in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) − the industry standard for almost 60 years and trusted by the dangerous goods supply chain − and converts them into an automated compliance solution.

Optimizing Dangerous Goods Declarations

DG AutoCheck optimizes certain functions related to the booking, preparation and acceptance of dangerous goods declarations to deliver faster and more reliable processing and ensure the safe and compliant shipment of dangerous goods. The system will verify the integrity and completeness of the shipper’s declaration and provide a graphic representation of the package, with the required marks and labels to support decision making.

Simply scan or upload the dangerous goods declaration into the tablet-based tool. That’s it!
