Observations From IATA’s Global Dangerous Goods Outlook

September 27, 2023

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently announced the results of their annual 2023 Global Dangerous Goods Confidence Outlook, with the below observations.

The results highlight the need to reduce process complexity, establish effective staff recruitment and retention programs, and enhance digitalisation to facilitate the safe transport of dangerous goods.

A spokesperson for Labelmaster, who worked with IATA on the study said “Ongoing supply chain disruptions along with the continued growth of e-commerce and markets that rely on dangerous goods – from consumer products to electric vehicles – has made shipping goods safely and compliantly increasingly difficult”.

“While organisations showed improvement in their dangerous goods operations over the last year, the survey underscored the need to reduce process complexity and enhance digitalisation to address future supply chain and regulatory challenges”.

While an IATA spokesperson added “Confidence among dangerous goods professionals is high, yet challenges remain. These include process complexity, the mis-declaration of dangerous goods and the recruitment of skilled personnel. To meet the future growth in dangerous goods shipments, we need well-trained professionals following globally agreed standards and supported by the right technology and infrastructure”.
