Posted on 2/20/2018 by Roger Marks

UPS last week announced it will expand its International Special Commodities (ISC) program to allow healthcare providers, life sciences companies, and others to ship certain dangerous goods to 51 new countries and territories.

In response to rising demand for temperature-sensitive healthcare products and services around the globe, the delivery giant will now pick up and deliver packages of UN 3373 (Biological Substances, Category B, Diagnostic Specimen and Clinical Specimen) and UN1845 (Carbon Dioxide, solid or dry ice) to 100+ destinations.

Find convenient training solutions to ship infectious substances and dry ice by ground and air. 

The list of 51 new destinations is available from UPS here.

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.

We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
