Shipping Lithium Batteries

24/7 Emergency Response Number

Laptops, cell phones, watches, and cameras - everyone you know has one of these and probably takes it everywhere with them, without thinking twice. But here’s the catch: when lithium-ion batteries overheat, it may spark fires, explosions, or leaks. External heat sources can trigger thermal runaway, posing safety concerns. Consequently, lithium batteries are considered hazardous materials mandating adherence to domestic and international regulations. Is your company aligned with the evolving regulations for shipping lithium batteries? Non-compliance risks penalties and fines that could amount to thousands of dollars per violation.
