Batteries are dangerous goods, and air freight services for battery products is dangerous to the aircraft. The metal inside the battery, such as lithium, is generally very active. In air freight, if the impact or peripheral temperature changes, the pressure becomes larger, the metal inside the battery is prone to severe chemical reaction, and there is a large amount of energy-flammable and explosive, which may cause a warehouse fire or aircraft accident. Every year, due to improper operation of the battery or the power of the sender concealing the battery, the aircraft occurs fire and has devastating consequences.
Therefore, in international air freight, the battery products needs to be packaged in strict accordance with the requirements of the airline, and then accomplish the rest work and palletizing, and through a professional international freight forwarder to book and handle a series of preparations before take-off.

With years of experience in battery air freight from China handling operations, there are more than 1,000 successful cases and countless long-term cooperative customers.
Responsible for the whole process of professional quotation, guidance packaging, preparation of documents and other work.
Choose an air carrier. According to the actual cargo and destination airport, choose the right airline that can transport the battery products.
