Our new white paper explores the new risks of transporting li-ion batteries


Li-ion batteries power many of the electrical devices that we use in our day-to-day lives, from children’s toys and mobile phones to laptops and vehicles.

The boom in the use of Li-ion batteries have been sparked by a demand for companies to reduce their carbon emissions in tackling climate change.

However, many goods containing li-ion batteries, such as electric vehicles are increasingly being shipped by sea. Li-ion batteries are deemed many some experts to be a hazardous cargo due to their combustible nature.

The last year has seen various incidents involving fires on-board that many believe to have been caused by li-ion batteries.

In this white paper, we explore the implications of this new cargo risk for marine underwriters.
