Crane Worldwide Logistics has been awarded IATA’s CEIV Li-batt certification for transporting Lithium-Ion batteries.
IATA’s CEIV Li-batt certification program is a rigorous certification process ensuring operations, personnel, and facilities adhere to the standards, government regulations, and guidelines for transporting Lithium-Ion batteries.
The transportation and storage of Lithium-Ion batteries requires strict safety protocols to ensure the correct handling, packaging, and transportation methods of Lithium-Ion batteries, components, and products that contain lithium-ion batteries.
Said Robert Gulyas, Global Vice President of Automotive: “As the demand for Lithium-Ion batteries continues to surge around the world, this is an important step forward for Crane Worldwide Logistics in continuing our focus on safety when handling Lithium-Ion batteries.
“The certification has initially been awarded to key locations in Asia and North America, and we are grateful for the ongoing collaboration between IATA and our global teams. The certification assures our clients that safety is at the top of our agenda.”
Said Brendan Sullivan, IATA Global Head of Cargo: “We congratulate Crane Worldwide Logistics in achieving CEIV Lithium Battery certification.
“From cargo handlers, ground handling companies, freight forwarders and shipping companies, the more stakeholders along the value chain which participate in CEIV Lithium Battery, the stronger and more effective it will be for the industry.
“Ultimately, we all want to see a network of CEIV Lithium Battery trade lanes with participants certified at origin, destination and in transit points.”
