    UPS Inc. has expanded dangerous goods shipping program with the addition of more than 400 new commodities to the list of accepted products for its global air network and 300 products for its European ground services, the company said in a statement.
    In addition, the parcel giant and third-party logistics provider has also increased the allowable quantity of select dangerous goods accepted for shipment.
    UPS said it now offers transport services for dangerous goods between 36 countries in North America, Europe and Asia.
    “There is a growing demand from companies in a variety of industries to ship products that are classified as dangerous goods,” the company said. “For example, healthcare companies need to transport chemicals to clean laboratory equipment. Industrial manufacturing companies transport paint, compressed gases, adhesives and batteries, among other items.”
   “UPS helps companies meet strict and often complex requirements when shipping dangerous goods,” added UPS Chief Marketing Officer Teresa Finley. “Now we can meet our customers’ expanded needs for a one-stop solution to ship both conventional and dangerous goods.”

There’s a lot more accidents out there happening as a result of the lack of infrastructure investment in this country.

The Port of Oakland in May handled 85,964 TEUs of loaded imports and 78,070 TEUs of loaded exports, up 4.2% and 8.4% year-over-year, respectively.
