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.

All customers receive the support of a Spring sales executive who guides them through what needs to be done to get their specific goods identified, processed and packaged correctly. Once the customer has the correct packaging and labeling, Spring can collect the goods through their UK national collection network and deliver to the destination via its European road network.

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.”
