Identify the relevant regulations
You must determine the relevant regulations and requirements for the intended use of the particular battery you are importing or exporting. This may include shipping of batteries, hazardous materials, and customs regulations.
Obtain necessary permits and certifications
Depending on the country of origin and destination, you may need to get licenses and certifications, such as UN38.3 and MSDS for the batteries you are importing.

Choose a reliable transportation method
Lipo batteries are considered dangerous goods and must be transported in a safe and secure manner to ensure their integrity and compliance with regulations. The lipo batteries are typically shipped by air, if you order very large batteries and in large quantities, you can also choose sea shipping. The freight forwarder we cooperate with is very experienced in sending lipo batteries, which is safe and convenient. I suggest you choose our freight forwarder to deliver the batteries. By the way, we can’t use your DHL/UPS/FedEx account to ship the batteries, because only the shipping forwarder who has done battery filing can send batteries in China.
Complete customs procedures
When importing or exporting lipo batteries, you need to complete customs procedures to ensure that the batteries are correctly declared and cleared into and out of the country. This involves obtaining the necessary licenses for importing and exporting batteries, paying taxes and submitting relevant documents, etc.
Ensure compliance with disposal and recycling regulations
To minimize your environmental impact and avoid legal and regulatory issues, dispose of waste batteries in compliance with various local regulations regarding the disposal and recycling of lipo batteries.
