How to Ship Batteries by Ground and Air - Webcast
If you ship batteries by ground or air, you must comply with very detailed DOT and IATA regulations regarding how batteries are classified, packaged, marked, labeled, transported, and identified on shipping papers. The rules apply not only to batteries, but also to equipment or vehicles that contain batteries as well as batteries packed with equipment. Virtually all types of batteries are regulated, including lithium, lead-acid, nickel cadmium, and metal hydride alkaline. According to 49 CFR 172.704, all personnel involved in the classification, packaging, marking, labeling, or shipment of batteries must receive initial and recurrent transportation training. This live interactive webcast will satisfy your mandatory general awareness, function-specific, safety, and security training requirements for battery shipments.
