At the same time, the system helps maintain a database of cargoes in a systematic manner, replacing the more complicated paper documentation. It also makes real-time searches of information possible, enabling timely emergency response and reducing possible losses. On top of that, we also serve as a knowledge center to provide information and organize training and seminars on dangerous goods.”
