China can transport battery freight forwarder!

Because lithium is a metal that is particularly prone to chemical reactions, easy to extend and burn, lithium battery packaging and transportation, such as improper handling, easy to burn and explosion, accidents also occur. More and more attention has been paid to the accidents caused by non-standard behaviors in packaging and transportation, and multiple international agencies have promulgated multiple regulations, and various management agencies have become increasingly strict, improve operational requirements, and constantly modify regulations and regulations.According to logistics, in order to prevent air lithium batteries from causing air accidents, at least 18 airlines in the United States have banned the shipment of lithium electronic batteries this year, and the pilot union is also fighting to ban all passenger flights to transport batteries. Several Australian airlines are also concerned about the current packaging is not safe enough and the potential danger of fire or even explosion, Qantas and Jetstar Airlines will no longer accept lithium batteries as cargo transport, whether passenger or cargo aircraft do not accept. The ban applies to individually packaged batteries, not those contained in devices.On December 5, 2014, the Standardization Administration of China issued Notice No. 27, approving the release of 234 national standards, including the industry’s long-awaited “Safety requirements for lithium-ion batteries and battery packs for portable electronic products” (GB31241-2014).On March 10, 2015, the 9th International Air Transport Association (IATA) Global Cargo Conference was held in Shanghai, at which IATA urged the global air cargo to take three important initiatives – the paperless transformation of cargo processes, the development of global pharmaceutical cargo handling standards, and mandatory action to ensure the safe transportation of lithium batteries.The safe transportation of lithium batteries is still a key concern of the industry. Robust regulations and guidance exist, but not all shippers follow them carefully. China is the largest producer and an important market for lithium batteries. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has developed guidance in Chinese for the transport of lithium batteries, hoping to raise industry awareness of this important issue, but government authorities also need to strengthen management.According to the International Civil Aviation Organization 2015-2016 edition of the “Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air” and its correction No. 1, the Civil Aviation Authority stipulates that unless exempted by the country of origin, the country of the operator, the transit country, the overflight country and the destination country, the separately packaged lithium metal battery cargo is prohibited from being transported by passenger aircraft, but it can be carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of the “Technical Instructions”. Transport by cargo plane. The lithium metal batteries packaged with the equipment and the lithium metal batteries installed in the equipment can be transported by passenger aircraft and cargo aircraft in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Technical Instructions.Due to the serious harm of lithium batteries in air transportation, the international requirements for the international transportation of lithium batteries are becoming more and more stringent. The following is a brief introduction to the precautions for lithium battery shipping.First, lithium battery transportation packaging requirements1. Without exceptions, these batteries must be transported in accordance with the restrictions set out in the Regulations (Packaging Instructions applicable to DGR 4.2). They must be packed to the UN specifications specified in the DGR Dangerous Goods Regulations in accordance with the applicable packaging instructions and the corresponding number must be shown in full on the package.2. Packages that comply with the requirements, except marked with the applicable correct transport designation and UN number,They must also carry a category 9 hazard label.3. Shipper must fill in dangerous goods declaration form; Provide the corresponding dangerous bag certificate;Provide a transport qualification report from a certified third body and show that the product complies with the standard (including UN38.3 test, 1.2m drop package test).2. Marine transportation requirements for lithium batteries1. The battery shall pass the UN 38.3 test requirements and the drop package test of 1.2 meters.2. The outer package shall be labeled with Category 9 dangerous goods label and marked with UN number3. It is designed to prevent explosions under normal transport conditions and is equipped with effective measures to prevent external short circuits and to protect exposed electrodes.4. Strong outer packaging, the battery should be protected to prevent short circuit, in the same package to prevent contact with conductive substances that can cause short circuit.5. Additional requirements for battery installation in equipment transportation:a. The equipment shall be secured to prevent movement within the package and packed in such a way as to prevent accidental start-up in transit.(b) The outer packaging shall be waterproof, or waterproof by the use of an inner liner (such as a plastic bag), unless the structural characteristics of the equipment itself are already waterproof.6. The lithium battery should be loaded on a pallet to avoid strong vibration during handling, and the vertical and horizontal sides of the pallet should be protected by corner protection.7. The lithium battery loading container must be reinforced, and the reinforcement method and strength should meet the requirements of the importing country (such as: In the United States, there are American Railroad Association, American Dangerous Goods Association, North American Explosive Explosives Administration, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, United States Coast Guard, United States Transport 9 types of dangerous goods container Reinforcement Law Department and “Dangerous Goods by Sea Transport Rules” have relevant provisions), if the shipper is negligent reinforcement or improper reinforcement, at the port of destination will be detained box, At the same time, the operation fee, storage fee, container moving fee, re-reinforcement and other high costs are incurred.
