March 2016 – UN38.3 – Freeway Leading to maintain continuity of supply

Freeway are working closely with our manufacturing partners and associated test houses to ensure that we keep shipping channels and options open to our customers

UN38.3 is now a prerequisite for most mainstream carriers to move lithium batteries by AIR

SEA shipments are also being affected to some degree and certain carriers will not ship lithium batteries without UN38.3 certification

We have been working for some time to ensure that our customers remain unaffected wherever possible by this restriction. If you are using a lithium battery and would like advice on best options to maintain your supply pipeline contact us. Either send us a message via the ‘contact’ section on this website or send us an email at

For impartial and open advice and updates, Freeway are here to support you

Thanks – The Freeway Battery Team
