During the crisis related to COVID-19 required additional taxes for transportation of hazardous goods are increased.
Thus delivery of batteries and other hazardous goods outside the country becomes impossible.
As soon as the situation is changed and restrictions are revised we will continue supplying batteries outside Bulgaria
