The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that it intends to fine one of the integrated courier giants $120,000 for shipping a consignment of lithium batteries in an unsafe manner.
The revelation follows the recent pressure on authorities to step up punishments for violations of regulations governing dangerous goods, especially lithium ion batteries, on cargo aircraft.
The FAA alleges the multi national delivered a shipment that was not properly packaged, was not accompanied by a Shipper’s Declaration for Dangerous Goods and was not properly described, marked or labeled to indicate the hazardous nature of its contents. The company disputes these claims.
