K+N unveils new logistics solution for lithium batteries for electric vehicles


Kuehne + Nagel has announced the launch of a new service offering, KN BatteryChain, its first integrated supply chain solution that actively addresses growing global demand for lithium batteries that can be used to power vehicles, according to Shipping Gazette.
Government regulations to meet CO2 emission targets and changing consumer behaviour encouraged by increased battery performance are driving up the worldwide production of battery electric vehicles (BEVs). It is assumed that in the next five years the electric car stock will triple. This in turn will boost the demand for transportation and storage of the key component lithium-ion battery, a company statement said.
Large-format lithium batteries as used for electric vehicles require a high level of handling detail and expertise to comply with international dangerous goods regulations and restrictions. The company said it addresses this complexity with its certified end-to-end solution KN BatteryChain, specifically designed to offer safe, reliable and efficient mass transportation as well as storage of lithium cells and batteries.
CEO Kuehne + Nagel International AG, Dr Detlef Trefzger, commented: "KN BatteryChain demonstrates Kuehne + Nagel's leading role in global automotive logistics and our capability to anticipate industry trends from which we derive industry-specific solutions in time.
"I am convinced that this innovative solution developed in close cooperation with our customers and partners will set industry standards for the supply chain along the entire battery life cycle and support our automotive customers and the aftermarket to grow their businesses."
The solution spans from transportation by sea, air, rail and road from the manufacturer to the assembly line to warehousing for production logistics and aftermarkets, as well as returns of used and faulty batteries from dealers.
