Battery shipping

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
Does anyone have any recommendations for shippers who handle LiFePO
batteries?  I have some CALB 180ah batteries that UPS/Fedex won't ship.

Thanks,
Barry

Barry,
Very timely question.
Just yesterday I shipped a pallet with LiFePO4 batteries to Lee Hart.
I used R&L Carriers, you just have to pay a Hazardous Materials fee.
I believe their website is rlc.com

Cor,

Do you happen to know the total cost per battery?

Re: Battery shipping

Barry,

It goes by weight and distance.

They have shipped a complete Nissan Leaf battery (on an oversized pallet) for me across country for around $500

and the shipment to Lee has about 500 lbs of cells plus a Prius battery on a standard sized pallet

and the cost of this almost cross-country shipment plus Haz plus residential fees is also just over 500.

Note that the company I work for has a contract w R&L and I repay my employer for the private shipment.

 

Actually, when I say pallet, I typically build a *crate* from 2 pallets with pillars in between, to protect the shipment.

In the case of Lee’s shipment I coralled the cells between 2x4 pieces midway up the cells,

that I attached to the pillars plus old plywood under and some slats above the cells so they have nowhere to go.

The Prius battery was simpler, just bolt down to the pallet and plywood.

Cor.
