BikeFlights.com has simplified the process of shipping bikes with batteries over seas, including pedal assist e-bikes.

Thanks to enhancements made to BikeFlights.com’s web interface, cyclists are now prompted when booking to indicate whether their shipment does or doesn’t include batteries and if so, whether those batteries are contained within components and gear, are part of an e-bike or are standalone.

The answers let BikeFlights.com better direct its customers to appropriate shipping options that are in compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations.

Effectively immediately, certified e-bike shippers now get their labels for e-bike shipments within a few minutes - just as they would for shipments of bikes without motors and batteries. BikeFlights.com does not assess a Hazmat fee for shipping complete e-bikes; however, a $40 Hazmat fee does apply for standalone battery shipments.

“The demand for shipping e-bikes is only going to keep increasing, and this is great news for our e-bike shipping partners,” said BikeFlights.com owner William Alcorn. “They can now ship more efficiently and save money.”
