Shipping Support Services

On-Site and Off-Site Staff Augmentation

As utility personnel age, there is a decline in the availability of qualified professionals to handle and transport radioactive waste. WMG recognizes this challenge and offers the Shipping Command Center, ProShipper™, and Subject Matter Expert (SME) services as a practical solution to bridge the gaps in a utility's radwaste workforce.

To cater to operational needs, customers have the flexibility to choose between on-site or off-site support.  Drawing on WMG's extensive experience in this domain, these services act as a reliable and efficient resource for clients, enabling them to effectively tackle their most intricate radioactive waste challenges. With our expertise, we ensure the successful completion of your projects.
