Electric vehicles, e-bikes, e-scooters, and other progressive mobility products are populating cities around the world. Scenarios show that by 2030 global electric car sales will reach some 25 million and the stock of vehicles may be greater than 130 million. In order to meet environmental standards, regulations are strict and new concepts and new policies are continuously being introduced.
Batteries are the main drivers of the ongoing electrification of the world, which rapidly increases the need for reliable solutions. However, the logistics for transport, return, and recycling are complex due to their dangerous-goods classification.
Comprehensive legal requirements for transportation and warehousing are combined with individual regulations concerning battery types and transportation modes.
