ShipHazmat complies with new FX-18 variation by FedEx as an approved vendor for dangerous goods declarations

As a long-standing leader in regulatory compliance hazmat software, the Bureau of Dangerous Goods, Ltd. is an approved vendor by FedEx® for its ShipHazmat® software and web applications.

Effective, January 10, 2011, FedEx is requiring all dangerous goods declarations to be created using one of the following methods:
  • FedEx-approved vendor for software applications,
  • pre-approved shipper-proprietary software, or
  • FedEx automated shipping solutions that dangerous goods edit checks (e.g. FedEx Ship Manager®).
ShipHazmat already is an approved vendor by FedEx, and is available as a standalone software program and internet-based application with annual subscriptions and one-time options for occasional shippers of dangerous goods.

Operator variation FX-18 in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations of the 52nd edition describes this new requirement by FedEx.
