Batteries are an essential part of our modern world. From cars and phones, to medical equipment and more — we rely on lithium ion batteries as the foundation of a lot of tech in our society.
Additionally, certain batteries are classified as dangerous goods, and transporting lithium ion batteries requires special care to avoid damage or injury. Because of this, the safe and efficient packaging, delivery and documentation of these items is of paramount importance as they move through the supply chain.
Meeting Shipping Requirements
As previously mentioned, lithium ion batteries are classified as dangerous goods/hazardous materials and require strict compliance for packaging and transportation to meet local and international regulations.
Because of the risk involved, there are a number of regulations put in place by organizations to ensure compliance, and help get your package from point A to point B safely.
Organizations and Requirements That Include Hazardous Materials Regulations
Meeting all packaging and shipping requirements is crucial, as mistakes can lead to additional costs and fines for your business, shipping delays, corrective action or even pose a safety risk.
