Overpack (Milan, Italy) specialists are at your side for any need in the logistic management of your lithium batteries.
Lithium batteries are widely used in everyday life due to their ability to provide excellent performance and long-lasting charge.
They are found in many electrical and electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, signal kits, electronic measuring equipment, electric vehicles and much more.
Depending on whether batteries are shipped individually, packed with or contained in a device, they will be classified differently for transport purposes.
It will also be necessary to follow precise packing and shipping instructions.
