myGermany as certified Lithium shipper.

There is a lot of attention for lithium ion batteries these days. They power smart phones, tablets and electric vehicles that we will all drive one day. They are also considered dangerous goods (DG) from a shipping perspective and, therefore, require special packaging, labeling and storage – along with meeting a long list of government regulations and supplier requirements.
myGermany is certified in packing and shipping Lithium internationally.

Why is Lithium shipping so problematic?

Unlike traditional alkaline batteries that are widely used in your home, most lithium batteries contain a flammable electrolyte and have an incredibly high energy density. They can overheat and ignite under certain conditions, such as in the event of a short circuit, contact with water or physical damage that may occur during a long voyage.
This is why carrier regulations and restrictions are so strict. And these requirements apply door to door. This means that first and last mile truck drivers, warehouse operators and container freight stations – in addition to air and ocean carriers – must have the appropriate experience and certification to handle dangerous goods.

Are there special documents required to ship Lithium Ion batteries internationally?

Yes. Although not always required, a dangerous goods declaration is one of the most important forms documenting the type of cargo and the associated hazards. The exact UN code must be specified as this determines the applicable regulations. You must also provide the product’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Additionally, lithium batteries must undergo a series of tests at the factory to verify their ability to withstand heat, vibration, and more. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) now requires manufacturers and distributors to provide “test summaries” to suppliers. This requirement applies worldwide and is now certified by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

How to pack Lithium goods for global shipment?

As for shipping, most of the packaging is done at the factory, with an emphasis on separating individual batteries to avoid short circuits or physical damage. The way lithium batteries are shipped determines how they should be packaged and labeled. To ensure compliance with all regulations, shippers must obtain authorization to package dangerous goods.
Batteries must be placed in a non-metallic inner packaging that completely encloses the cell or battery and isolates each from contact with electrically conductive materials (e.g. metal).
They should be packed to prevent slipping that could cause damage.
Electric vehicle batteries contained in vehicles or devices must be securely fastened in the battery holder.
A large portion of electric vehicle battery shipments come through Asia, where monsoon rains can penetrate poorly protected outer packaging and damage the goods. Heavy-duty shrink wrap and plastic wrap are a wise investment. Dimerco uses such techniques to ship batteries and protect high-value semiconductor products. For more details on these packaging techniques, see our eBook: Optimize Your Electronics Supply Chain. Freight forwarders, such as myGermany, pay attention to the following on the outer packaging:
Identify charger type (e.g. lithium-ion batteries)
Class 9 lithium battery label
UN Directorate General identification number
Name and address of the sender or recipient
Markings such as the one below for lithium batteries must be permanently affixed or printed, legible and weatherproof.
