Shipment of lithium batteries poses big problem to air cargo sector


The current embargo on bulk shipping of lithium batteries on passenger flights will cripple many otherwise healthy industries, says New York's Air Cargo World.
"Governments worldwide need to give a boost to e-commerce and air cargo by assisting manufacturers in developing better packaging standards and enforcing mutually agreeable safe battery transportation regulations," said the commentary.
"As the US approaches December 2016 single-window import clearing electronic processing deadline, the replacement of paper with digital data should allow multiple government agencies access to the same consignment information," it said.
The sharing of this information must result in clearing shipments at the border faster, the article said.
"At the Cargo Facts Asia 2016 conference, panellists addressing e-commerce and its relationship to air freight agreed that individual players risk being squeezed out unless they make significant changes."
