Netherlands-based Spring Global Mail has launched a new postal service for sending lithium batteries to European destinations from the UK. The service offers a postal channel for manufacturers and retailers to deliver lithium batteries cost effectively through either standard or registered post.
The service applies to lithium batteries packaged with equipment or on their own, with a maximum weight of 2kg. Lithium batteries are classified as dangerous goods and have to travel through road line-haul not airmail.
Standard post destinations are Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland. Registered post deliveries are made to the Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark and Luxembourg.
Paul Taylor, head of sales and marketing, Spring Global Mail UK, said, “The new service offers an expertise and a straightforward postal solution that removes the complications and barriers to
business that have existed until now for many senders wishing to transport lithium batteries.”
