Shipping Drums - Best Practices

I am seeking the best way to package drums for shipping.

Nested or boxed individually?

How to prevent shipping damage ie bubble wrap?

Best carrier?

Insurance?

How do the manufacturers do it?

Other tips from the experienced?

Your input will be appreciated!

Hi Jeffrey,

Here is a link to a site that has detailed instructions (with pictures) on how to pack drums for shipping. Check it out...I did and would use these instructions myself!

Just to add to my first posting, I use FEDEX to ship my packages rather than UPS. Why? Because FEDEX delivers on Saturday, but UPS does not. And their rates are competitive.

You should insure your packages for the full value of the contents and you can do this when you create a shipping label on FEDEX.com

Good luck!!!
