Don’t Let DOT Changes Catch You Off-Guard: A Costly Mistake
Will you be ready for the biggest change in 20 years? Shipping of consumer commodities like cosmetics, drugs, perfume, aerosols, paints, acetone and many more is changing this year now that all the appeals of the DOT Consumer Commodity act have been addressed. Do you know your shipping costs will increase unless you know the new options? Is your IT department aware of the changes and can they complete them before the deadlines? What employees have to be retrained? In this session, you will learn ways to address these issues to have a smooth transition and not affect your bottom line, too much! Discover which package markings, size limits, shipping paper requirements and hazard class exceptions are changing. Also hear about how other parcel shippers are handling the changes. BONUS You will also receive a summary of changes, copy of the presentation and links to the final rule and answers to appeals
