Shipping Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries can be complicated to ship by air. Most people use the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations but the lithium battery packing instructions are not like most of the other packing instructions.

To make it easier to ship lithium batteries by air, we’ve prepared a video that goes over the special packaging, marks, labels, and documentation commonly required when shipping lithium batteries by air.

You can watch the video on youtube or just watch here on our site:

This is not a stand-alone module; this video training is meant to be a supplement to the full hazmat certification training that we offer. If you haven’t taken that training, then we recommend attending one of our classes so you can understand the scope of your compliance obligations, and then using this video to review how to follow the IATA instructions for shipping lithium batteries (in particular).
