  3. Reduced environmental impact with acid leaks contained.
  4. Ease and convenience preparing batteries for transport.

Battery Rescue’s used lead acid battery collection service revolves around the free supply of the Battery Transport & Storage (BTS) Container.  When full the container is closed and secured by 6 over centre latches and is ready for shipment in less than 30 seconds. Mining clients use their contracted transport provider to return the containers to our Perth yard. The shipment of the empty replacement containers is arranged by Battery Rescue, using the same transport provider.

The addition of 4G enabled IoT devices has been important in enabling tracking of the BTS Containers. This ensures that we can more efficiently manage the current pool of 81 containers deployed in the Western Australian mining sector. It has helped identify delivery errors, bottlenecks and enabled us to ensure a constant supply of containers to our clients.
