Transportation of Class 9 Lithium Batteries

Here at Clarke, we have been delivering pallet consignments to businesses for almost 90 years. We have unrivalled knowledge of the B2B and ADR industry and offer a range of delivery methods to suit all requirements.

The transportation of lithium batteries is regulated by the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Lithium batteries have become increasingly common in our daily lives, powering everything from mobile phones to electric cars. However, they are also considered dangerous goods due to their potential to overheat, catch fire, or explode under certain conditions.

To ensure the safe transportation of lithium batteries, ADR sets out specific regulations for packaging, labeling, and handling of these goods. Lithium batteries must be properly packaged and labeled with the appropriate hazard warning labels, and the packaging must meet certain standards to prevent damage to the batteries and to prevent leaks or short-circuits.

Transporters of lithium batteries must also receive training on how to properly handle these goods, including how to recognize and respond to emergency situations involving lithium batteries. In addition, ADR regulations require that lithium batteries be segregated from other dangerous goods during transport to prevent any potential interaction or reaction with other substances. By following these regulations, the transportation of lithium batteries can be conducted safely and efficiently, minimizing the risk of accidents or incidents during transport.
