Storage advice: Transport rules for lithium batteries
The installing company may transport batteries up to a total weight of 333 kilograms. However, in such a case he may not carry a gas cylinder or other dangerous goods. The exact calculation is regulated in the ADR under point 184.108.40.206.4. This 1,000-points rule also applies to logistics, while the tradesman’s rule only applies to installing companies.
As of 2011, the ADR provides certain simplifications for the transport, e.g. of batteries, by installing companies, if the product is to be transported from the company to the customer. This exemption does not apply to distributors or for transporting between warehouses. The exemption is described in the ADR in point 220.127.116.11, paragraph C. Look there to get informed. (HS)
