Carrier Information Network
CHEMTREC’s Carrier Information Network is a database of carrier contact information, which enables CHEMTREC to contact you when there is a need for additional information to help mitigate an incident. Having carrier information on file helps CHEMTREC facilitate immediate, accurate responses in emergency situations. The Carrier Information Network is also extended to include 3PLs, freight forwarders, warehouses, etc.
In some instances, on-scene personnel may only be able to provide the name of the carrier and may not be able to identify the product and/or the name of the shipper. When a carrier’s contact information is on file with CHEMTREC, we can contact the carrier to research the identity of the product and/or the shipper.
