Databases - Dangerous Goods, Production, Storage & Handling
DGM-SDG develops, maintains and distributes all kinds of data regarding Dangerous Goods, its production, storage, handling and transport.
All data is based on (inter)national rules, regulations and laws where available.
Besides that SDG is constantly improving the data set by adding relevant data and creation of ‘smart data’.
Our ‘smart data’ is creating the additional value to the regulatory data which many other providers are offering as well.
Examples of ‘smart data’:
- Cross referencing between the various modes of transport and variations in regultions
- Auto segregation and stowage parameters inside packages, overpacks, pallets, containers, trucks and even vessels and warehouses.
Our data is available for integration in existing applications, as extension of our web services, or as part of our interfacing service.
Web Services for Cargo and Dangerous Goods
The Web services we have available can be used to interface with your existing systems to:
- Eliminate double work
- Enhance quality
- Reduce errors
- Improve efficiency
Our general setup is to enable you to send requests for info to the service and the service replies with the information after which you can request further based on results etc.
Additional we can load a basic DG related database table in your application and connect that to your products, shipments or other main process element to reduce the information requests.
When the process requires specific information or a document to be generated, the application generates a ‘file’ which can be XML, ASCII or other format. This file is automatically transferred to the web service. The web service processes the file and creates the requested information or document in accordance with the regulations and customer specifications and returns it to the application.
Two examples of realised setups are:
- DGMNotoc web service integrated in the Cargospot application delivered by CHAMP
- ADR web service integrated in Vikingegaarden VMS.
Interfacing - Dangerous Goods Management Solutions
DGOffice™ Remote Server is a remote support system that allows you to integrate Dangerous Goods Management solutions into existing environments.
It adds Dangerous Goods logistic solutions to existing backoffice systems like Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Customer Relation Management (CRM) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions such as SAP.
The actual solutions are processed in a separate remote system, the DGOffice™ Remote Server.
The interface connecting the two systems is running in the background and is triggered by user-initiated actions on, for instance, the order processing system. This can be anything from a new order to a simple change in the status of a shipment. The user does not have to take additional actions, other than collecting the processed documents from the printer, the email system or any specified file location.
DGM-SDG will be present at the following events this year:
- International Air Cargo Forum & Exhibition in Paris, France. October 26th – 28th. Visit us at Booth 453.
