A question from a reader of my Newsletter on July 22, 2015:
Is there a certain height maximum that wet batteries UN2794 can be loaded for highway transportation? I believe there is and I am looking for the specific information. If so can you tell me specifically where I can find this information. I just finished reading your article from November 13 2014 for Packaging Wet Batteries for Transportation and did not see anything regarding loading height limits.
My reply the very next day (7.23.15):
Thank you for contacting me. The answer to any question about packaging for batteries, wet, filled with acid can be found in 49 CFR 173.159 (referenced from column 8 of the Hazardous Materials Table).
