About TDG: Our Projects

Dangerous Goods (Hazmat) Penalty Mitigation Consulting

Large international drug store chain (8+ Billion Annual Revenues)

Penalty mitigation and operational audit of large (500,000 sq foot DC operation) distribution center shipping operations.

Plastics/Molding Company

Received $75,000 proposed penalty for “excepted” lithium coin cell shipment.  Provided training for company managers and supported outside counsel in the penalty mitigation process.

Large Fragrance and Flavoring Company manufacturing thousands of flavors and fragrances

Received $80,000 proposed penalty for 1.5 oz bottle of Tea Tree oil that was unexpectedly expedited and shipped undeclared by air (was not considered “flammable” by ground transport).  Provided initial and recurrent training as well as support to counsel in responding to the penalty action.  We also created a customized online training program for their employees that focused specifically on their products.

Auto Parts Manufacturer

Assisted in mitigation of a $50,000 penalty for shipping a can of prototype paint to the parent company in Japan.

Large consumer products catalog retailer 

Helped mitigate $60,000 penalty for shipment of aerosols.

Large Japanese heavy machinery company

$70,000 proposed penalty for shipment of custom spray paint to their client to repair cosmetic damage to their compressors.  Worked with corporate counsel and provided onsite and web-based training as well as establishing procedures manual for shipping operations.

Air-Gun products manufacturer and distributor

Fined for incorrectly shipping “Green Gas” that was mistakenly declared as an ORM-D when it was not, in fact, eligible.  Provided consulting and training as well as penalty mitigation support.

Automotive Parts Distributor 

One of the largest independent auto parts dealers in Texas.  Assisted with penalty mitigation and provided onsite and instructor-training for DC personnel.

Supported response to FAA penalty action for shipping “excepted” lithium ion batteries (including Lithium Iron Phosphate) and provided ongoing training.

One of the worlds largest Japanese forwarders
