Transportation of Class 9 Lithium Batteries

For 90 years, Clarke Transport has been a trusted name in the delivery of Parcel & Pallet consignments, showcasing unparalleled expertise in the B2B and ADR industries. Our comprehensive range of delivery methods caters to diverse requirements.

Handling the transportation of lithium batteries demands strict adherence to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). While lithium batteries power much of our daily lives, they are classified as dangerous goods due to their potential hazards.

To ensure secure transportation, ADR mandates precise packaging, labeling, and handling procedures. Lithium batteries must be correctly packaged and adorned with specific hazard warning labels. The packaging itself must meet rigorous standards to prevent damage, leaks, or short-circuits.

Being transporters of lithium batteries must undergo rigorous training on proper handling, including recognizing and responding to emergencies involving these batteries. Furthermore, ADR regulations stipulate that lithium batteries must be segregated from other dangerous goods during transport to prevent any potential interactions or reactions.

Clarke Transport possesses all the necessary certifications and expertise to handle the transportation and warehousing of lithium batteries. In compliance with the latest UN classifications tailored for lithium batteries, we specialize in:

  • UN 3090: Lithium metal batteries
  • UN 3091: Lithium metal batteries contained in equipment, or packed with equipment
  • UN 3480: Lithium-ion batteries
  • UN 3481: Lithium-ion batteries contained in equipment, or packed with equipment
  • UN 3536: Lithium-ion batteries contained in equipment, or packed with equipment

Through our ADR pallet and parcel network, we stand ready to support your business in the distribution of lithium batteries and other goods classified under ADR regulations
