HSC’s clients understand that the movement of dangerous goods can’t stop a country’s border. However, the complexity of the global supply chain is even more complicated when the commodity that is being shipped is considered a dangerous good. HSC has extensive experience in international diplomacy, representation, and compliance. The HSC team has participated and led discussions at all of the United Nations subcommittees, both as regulators, consultants, and as representatives of the NGO, the Medical Device Battery Transport Council (MDBTC). HSC’s professional network includes regulators, transporters, 3PL’s, and consultants from around the globe. If you are in the business of distributing dangerous goods world-wide, HSC can help.
