About eShipLab

eShipLab is the only one-stop integrated solution for shipping hazardous and dangerous goods via any U.S. carrier to virtually any destination worldwide. Its strict Web-based shipping process ensures that only authorized and property trained users can ship packages and that packages meet all regulatory requirements. With eShipLab, shippers save time and money, reduce shipping risks, and increase the physical safety and integrity of their shipments, all while going green.

Among eShipLab's benefits are:

  • Provides a Web-based solution that provides a step-by-step process for shipping packages anywhere, anytime the user has Internet access;
  • Identifies the least expensive carrier as contracted by the shipper and also offers routing options, enabling the user to save on shipping costs;
  • Ensures that only authorized and properly trained users can ship packages through the system so that all packages are properly classified, labeled and packaged, thus increasing protection against shipping liability risks;
  • Ensures that all regulatory requirements are met, as determined by the package contents and destination, including requirements from the FAA, IATA, Department of Treasury, Department of Commerce (export licensing), shipping carriers, and more;
  • Helps prevent shippers from sending packages to restricted party screening (RPS) entities, including unauthorized countries, business entities and individual names, which can result in fines of up to $1 million and up to 20 years in prison;
  • Requires authorized shippers to be properly trained to ship regulated dangerous goods. The system recognizes training levels and will stop the process and alert the administrator if an unauthorized, untrained shipper tries to process a shipment;
  • Provides easily accessible Web-based reporting on shipments and users, including tracking for packages sent by all carriers. This is particularly useful for internal and external (FAA) audits;
  • Helps users save time and money on shipping by facilitating and centralizing the billing process. As well, shipments can easily and automatically be billed back to designated departments;
  • Helps users go green by using a Web-based solution to do their shipping, requiring less paperwork. It also helps ensure a green environment by specifying the appropriate protective packaging for hazardous and dangerous shipments; and
  • Supports incoming shipments where the recipient is being billed for shipping. eShipGlobal users can request their suppliers to ship through eShipGlobal so all tracking and billing are controlled and use the least cost routing, with all tracking accessible through the Web-based system. This makes it easy to track shipments and manage suppliers and shipping expenses.
