Cruise to Compliance: Navigating Placarding

November 2, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Join your colleagues and the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) for a complimentary webinar, Cruise to Compliance: Navigating Placarding, set for 1:00-2:00 pm ET on Thursday, November 2.


A company not using placard and segregation software can have a problem with being consistent with regulations. Often drivers get different placard solutions from different dispatchers. These conflicts can erode the trust between drivers and management, and if not handled correctly, can lead to huge fines or even jail time.

During this webinar Rick Price, partner at Timothy Ridge LLC, and a LTL carrier, will discuss three different Placard Wizard solutions for complying with hazmat placard and segregation regulations.

What will you gain?

  • An understanding of all three approaches and which one best fits your company’s needs.
  • The benefits of a customized “Intranet” solution.
  • A demo of how to use the HazMat Software.
  • An appreciation of the scale of economies gained by automating your hazmat solution and having your TMS call on Placard Wizard API.

Placard Wizard is available at a discount to NMFTA members. The software is helping solve the problem by automating the chronicling of hazmat information directly into the carriers’ transportation management systems.
