Most of the DACHSER branches will officially re-open on February 10. Starting from Monday next week, February 3, depending on cities and permissions from local authorities, skeleton staff will be arranged to enter the office building to manage critical shipments and minimize impact like detention, demurrage fee, TLX release and etc. We regret that we could not provide full operations but will try out best to maintain basic services.

New regulatory requirements for lithium batteries and cells as of January 1, 2020

Before lithium batteries and cells can be transported, they must pass certain tests. These tests simulate various conditions with regard to, for example, pressure, temperature, crushing and impact that may arise during shipping.

On January 1, 2020, more stringent requirements concerning lithium batteries and cells will come into effect for all modes of transport worldwide. In future, a test summary compliant with UN 38.3.5 must be submitted for all lithium batteries and cells manufactured after June 30, 2003 (i.e. UN3480, UN3481, UN3091, UN3090), as well as for all battery-powered vehicles manufactured after June 30, 2003 (i.e. UN 3171). Doing so will be the joint responsibility of the manufacturers and the distributors of these goods.

According to the airlines, carriers and shipping companies, these documents can be requested from DACHSER. We therefore kindly ask our customers to make these documents available to us for all the lithium batteries and cells mentioned, so that we can, in turn, make them available throughout the entire supply chain. We hereby inform our customers that, as of January 1, 2020, it will no longer be possible to load the affected goods without these documents. For further information, please click here.

Delay of Brexit - What is still to be considered?

As is known, early general elections for the House of Commons are scheduled for December 12, 2019 in the UK. The EU has also agreed to extend the Brexit deadline to 31 January 2020. The danger of a no deal Brexit is thus averted for the time being. If an agreement on the negotiated contract is reached before 31.01.2020, the agreed transitional period will initially remain in force until 31.12.2020. 

Regardless of whether it is a "soft" or a "hard" Brexit, a customs authority of the respective recipient is essential for the processing of shipments to and from the UK. Therefore, we ask our customers to continue to advise their recipients to provide us with the necessary customs authority.

We will keep you up informed about further developments.
