Blackwood provide logistic and shipping support for the export of Lithium batteries from the UK to Europe, alongside a network of approved treatment operators in the UK.

We offer an end-to-end solution for companies looking to recycle including transport, storage and recycling.



Blackwood have relationships with ship owners, transport companies and ports all over the world. In addition to solving  transportation problems our customers use us to manage their short term waste storage at port as well as longer term options off site.


We are experienced in optimising 'whole of project' costs (including transportation, compliance, material handling and storage management) for long term, multi-year  projects as well as ad-hoc movements. 

We specialise in waste projects where cost or compliance around transportation challenges project viability, and where there are limited options on route viability, transport specification and carrier availability.
