IAG Cargo has adopted the International Air Transport Association’s newly developed Dangerous Goods AutoCheck (DG AutoCheck) to automate the acceptance of dangerous goods shipments from its London-Heathrow hub.

DG AutoCheck is a digital solution that facilitates the acceptance of dangerous goods by checking all the regulations, rules and guidance contained in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and converts them into an automated validation solution, enabling IAG Cargo to check the compliance for the Declaration for Dangerous Goods (DGD) against the latest industry regulations more quickly. 

The DG AutoCheck platform uses optical character recognition technology enabling paper DGD to be transformed into electronic data facilitating a safe, secure and efficient operation for IAG Cargo in relation to its dangerous goods shipments. 

The platform facilitates in the verification of the packages’ marks and labels on dangerous goods consignments.

John Cheetham, Chief Commercial Officer at IAG Cargo, said: “Every year IAG Cargo handles thousands of dangerous goods shipments - compliance checks on these complex consignments can be time consuming. 

“Implementing the IATA DG AutoCheck platform will eliminate manual processes to transform and automate dangerous goods acceptance checks whilst increasing safety and operational efficiency.”
