Numerous companies worldwide today must safely and expediently transport damaged lithium cells and batteries or equipment containing them. Meeting current regulations for such shipments can be costly.
Labelmaster now provides a new option that allows businesses to ship such products via ground at a reduced expense based on a special permit from the Department of Transportation (DOT) to offer an innovative packaging design solution.
The special permit grants relief from the DOT 49 CFR §173.185 requirements. These regulations, which cover damaged, defective or recalled lithium cells, do not permit the use of common and less expensive fiberboard packaging products. The special permit also authorizes small cells and batteries to be shipped in the fiberboard packagings without having to declare them as Class 9 fully regulated shipments.
The Labelmaster alternative packaging allows companies to not only transport damaged lithium batteries by ground using less expensive materials but also gives them relief from shipping small cells and batteries as fully regulated taking into account that shipments needs to be sent by consumers and retail employees.
The Labelmaster alternative packing product is available for ground and domestic sea transport only.
