LINPAC Allibert, global expert in plastic returnable transit packaging for the food, retail, storage and distribution and manufacturing sectors, has received UN/ADR approval for its Geobox (with lid and straps) for the transportation of lead acid batteries by road.
A strong, sturdy container, it is approved by ADR* standards for the transport of dangerous goods and is UN certified, making it the ideal product for the movement and disposal of lead acid batteries, such as the bulk carriage of scrap vehicle batteries.
The Geobox provides a secure environment during transit for up to 543 litres, due to its rigid construction and strapable lid, all produced using HDPE. It is also available with either 2 or 3 runners depending on whether or not tipping is required
Danilo Oliynik, Commercial Director at LINPAC Allibert, explains: “With the introduction of recycling legislation, the disposal of products must be carried out responsibly including transport and our products provide some of the best standards for most, if not all scenarios.
“Many battery chemicals are corrosive, poisonous, or both. If leakage occurs, either spontaneously or through accident, the chemicals released may be dangerous. The introduction of recycling legislation has made it necessary for products to be disposed of responsibly which includes the transport of the product from the recycling collection point to the recycling facility.
“We see the UN/ADR approved Geobox as an ideal product for the waste management companies, local authorities who have to take responsibility for this heavily regulated sector of logistics.”
* ADR (Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route) is the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by road.
