DALLAS, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When the transportation industry converges on Albuquerque, N.M., on November 2 for the 2015 Dangerous Goods Advisory Council (DGAC) Conference and Dangerous Goods Transportation Exposition, they'll have the opportunity to see eShipLab 2.0 in action. Set for launch at the DGAC Conference, eShipLab 2.0, from eShipGlobal (http://www.eshipglobal.com), includes complete integration with International Air Transport Association (IATA) HAZMAT tables, fully automated Shipper's Declaration for Dangerous Goods forms, and better material classification than ever before.
eShipLab was already a trusted dangerous goods shipping solution in the higher education market before the upgrade. At the Annual Biological Safety Association (ABSA) Conference, Yale University presented the benefits they have seen as a direct result of using eShipLab. Other top national research institutions rely on eShipLab to ship hazardous materials more safely and efficiently. With that in mind, eShipGlobal turned to its academic users when it was time to upgrade.
"What makes eShipLab 2.0 special is that it has been developed with the top research institutes," said eShipGlobal's Product Manager, Derick Workman. "This new release leverages the collective expertise of our customers in real-world environments."
eShipLab 2.0 features a host of other updates designed to improve the hazardous materials shipping process. Shippers now only need to input the material name, inner package material type, and net quantity and eShipLab 2.0 will identify the best way to ship the material and print all required information on the shipping forms. Built-in Department of Transportation (DOT) ground shipping support enables shippers to ship larger quantities of hazardous materials via ground. A new feature segregates dangerous goods, preventing shippers from inadvertently packaging reactive materials together. Split cost allocation allows shippers to bill multiple cost codes or departments when needed. Proper shipment labeling & documentation help shippers avoid fines, additional carrier fees, and mishandling of packages & research materials.
"With eShipLab 2.0, we are simplifying the hazardous material shipping process," explained eShipGlobal CEO Srini Vasan. "Customers can quickly classify materials, shop for the best carrier rate, and generate all the required shipping documentation. eShipLab will ensure that IATA and DOT regulations are enforced, making compliance a much easier goal to achieve."
eShipLab 2.0 by eShipGlobal helps eliminate many of the challenges of shipping dangerous goods while saving on shipping cost and time. eShipLab ensures compliance wherever your shipment's final destination may be. eShipLab 2.0 provides up-to-date integrations of the latest regulations, and provides support every step of the way.
