Effective January 1st, 2017, UPS changed its requirements for shipping lithium batteries by air.
The change requires that all U.S. Air and international Air shipments of lithium ion or metal cells and batteries shipped without equipment by a UPS Air service be prepared and shipped as fully regulated dangerous goods. Beginning January 1st, 2017, UPS no longer allows air shipments under reduced regulations, such as:
– Section II of IATA Packing Instructions 965 (ion, UN3480) and 968 (metal, UN3090)
Shippers need to enter a UPS Dangerous Goods service agreement before shipping lithium ion or lithium metal batteries without equipment by air. Additional service fees may apply to these changes.
