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.

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.

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