CEVA Batteries Solutions

First logistics provider to be awarded CEIV LiBa Certification by IATA

The rapidly evolving sectors of technology, renewable energy and sustainable solutions are driving up demand for lithium batteries. 100 million cars will be electric by 2030 while the demand for technology and healthcare devices is also growing. To keep up with these market trends, lithium battery production will increase tenfold over the next 15 years, as will the need for battery transport and warehousing.

Li-ion batteries logistics is complex and highly regulated.  This means it’s essential to select a trusted supplier with the capabilities and knowledge to ensure your lithium batteries are properly handled throughout the supply chain. You need your batteries to arrive intact and on-time, to guarantee the continuity of your business.

This is where our new CEVA Batteries solution can help.

Our expert teams across the world are now ready to guarantee the security of your lithium battery supply chain. We take care of all the challenges for you, including complex handling and storing requirements, the hazards of damaged and defective batteries, capacity constraints and volume restrictions, as well as domestic and international regulations.
