Inspection, testing, charging, discharging
In Kuehne + Nagel warehouses with the appropriate facilities and specialist staff can also carry out the inspection, testing, charging, and discharging of your lithium batteries.
The reverse logistics of lithium batteries requires further provisions such as specialist training, stricter warehousing requirements, and in some cases additional permits and licenses. Once inspected by specialist staff, returned batteries can be recycled, disposed of, repaired or dispatched to a given location.
Due to the hazardous nature of the material, lithium batteries must be packaged in accordance with specific modal regulations. KN BatteryChain can support you here with specialist packaging, marking and labeling services. This can also include bespoke packaging types such as steel frames and wooden pallets.
Recycling services can be provided subject to local regulations and are to be carried out by one of our select specialist partners.
