UN Packaging to Transport Solid Dangerous Goods
The ORBIS IonPak® is UN certified to transport solid dangerous goods (e.g. UN3480). Due to the special manufacturing process of our dangerous goods packaging, the IonPak is extremely robust and durable. We use up to 90% recycled plastics to manufacture our dangerous goods boxes, leading to emissions savings of 60-70 kg CO2 per load carrier. With the collapsible and stackable design, the IonPak UN packaging offers optimised space utilisation and significant cost savings. Speak to one of our packaging experts to learn more about possible applications. A certified dangerous goods safety advisor can inform you about customisation options.
Transporting Lithium-Ion Batteries Safely with the IonPak®
The IonPak was launched as a reusable FLC for safe lithium battery transport. The lithium battery shipping boxes are suitable for non-certified batteries, prototypes, battery cells, battery modules and batteries in equipment. For increased part protection, the batteries are stored in layers using customised interior packaging solutions that are developed to safely hold dangerous goods. In accordance with the latest dangerous goods guidelines, the shock absorbing interior packaging is adapted to your product. The lithium ion battery packaging utilises standard footprints designed to interface with customers’ existing supply chains. Once batteries are removed at the assembly line, two-unit loads can fit together and packed into one FLC, to reduce return shipping costs by up to 50%. The transport of airbags and belt tensioners of dangerous goods class 9 is possible after successful completion of fire testing.

Frequently Asked Questions About The UN Certified Packaging
Why are lithium-ion batteries classified as dangerous goods?
Due to their high energy density, lithium-ion batteries are one of the most used battery types – not only in the automotive industry. Li-ion batteries should only be handled and packaged by trained staff as improper use can represent a safety hazard. Lithium-ion batteries react to many different substances. When handled, stored or transported improperly, the batteries can overheat, catch fire or even explode. That is why all batteries and cells containing lithium are classified as Class 9 Dangerous Goods and the transportation of these goods is subject to strict regulations. Packaging of dangerous goods for transport such as the IonPak is developed to transport these goods and fulfill all the requirements to safely transport lithium-ion batteries.
How do you safely transport Lithium-Ion Batteries?
According to hazardous goods law, the transportation of lithium-ion batteries is subject to strict regulations. But not every packaging solutions is suitable to store and transport lithium-ion batteries. UN certified packaging for dangerous goods is necessary. ORBIS’ lithium battery shipping boxes fully hold and protect the batteries from damage or shocks of any kind. That includes isolating loose cables and poles. In order to prevent batteries from shifting, ORBIS uses customised protective and shock-absorbing dunnage layers in its UN packaging. The interior packaging can neither be conductive, nor inflammable. The outer packaging is tested in a 1,2 m drop test for its robustness and shock-resistance. Over the course of its life cycle, a battery goes through the following phases: prototype, battery cell, battery module, battery pack. The ORBIS IonPak is suitable to transport non-certified batteries, prototypes, battery modules as well as batteries in equipment.
What is a UN certification for packaging?
Packaging solutions for dangerous goods have to be certified according to UN standards. UN mark is an international system created by the United Nations, which is used for the classification, packaging, marking and labeling of dangerous goods, in order to transport them safely (by road, rail, sea and air). Independent institutions carry out the necessary tests to issue a UN certification mark. The UN packaging must meet or exceed minimum standards of performance before it can be used. An expert committee of the UN regularly list all dangerous substances and goods and assigns each a so-called UN number. Associated with each UN number is a hazard identifier, which encodes the general hazard class and subdivision. ORBIS Europe offers UN approved dangerous goods packaging with in different footprints. Our dangerous goods boxes are certified for solid dangerous goods (e.g. UN3480 – Lithium-Ion Batteries). The certification UN4H2/Y/S/*B/1697.657-200043 applies for recycled and primary materials.
