With the significant increase of lithium battery powered E-vehicle exports, we have been revisiting our existing vehicle transportation policy. This policy revision ensures the utmost safety and ease of business for our customers.

As per a recent client advisory, we would like to emphasize that it is mandatory for vehicle shippers to adhere to the following guidelines when booking with Sealand:

  • Gas powered vehicles shall be declared as dangerous goods under UN3166/class 9 or UN3171/class 9, unless they meet the requirements outlined in the IMDG Code Special Provision 961.
  • E-vehicles powered by Lithium batteries shall be declared as dangerous goods under UN3171/class 9. No special provision or exemption allowed.
  • Hybrid vehicles with Lithium batteries shall be declared as dangerous goods under UN3166/ class 9. No special provision or exemption allowed.

Effective November 1, 2021, we will no longer require shippers to provide Sealand with a copy of the Drain and Disconnect letter when shipping vehicles as non-dangerous. We will also stop requiring blanket Drain & Disconnect agreements from approved shippers.

As with any potentially dangerous cargo, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to abide by the IMDG regulations and requirements when shipping vehicles. Should the shipper fail to follow these requirements, a 5,000 USD Misdeclaration Fee per bill of lading will be applicable.

To further support this change, we have included below our Best Practice to Transport Vehicles guide to help ensure your cargo is transported safely and in accordance with applicable regulations and requirements.
