UPS has expanded its global dangerous goods shipping programme by adding more than 400 new commodities that can be accepted in its global air network and more than 300 products across its ground network in Europe.

The company also increased the allowable quantity of select dangerous goods accepted for shipment.

“UPS helps companies meet strict and often complex requirements when shipping dangerous goods,” said Nando Cesarone, President, UPS Europe. “Now we can meet our customers’ expanded needs for a one-stop solution to ship both conventional and dangerous goods.”

UPS customers can use UPS Worldship to verify if dangerous goods shipments meet requirements, and notify UPS when the shipments are ready for processing.
