About this Book
Whether a company operates global facilities or just imports/exports goods to the United States, personnel and advisors must understand regulatory requirements. Most companies that ship or receive goods internationally have developed MCS that address regulatory requirements; however, these typically are labor intensive, independent of other company systems, adequately address only their primary location, and are not updated in a timely manner. Supply chain logistics is complicated, and this book details how to avoid security holds on shipments and gives sound advice on how to cope if another "9/11" occurs. The book provides easy to understand guidance to shipping/receiving personnel, safety inspectors, transportation and logistics managers on the movement of hazardous cargo from one location to another ensuring compliance to the maze of regulatory requirements.
