Shipping barrels, drums and totes are used to ship many types of bulk cargo. They can be used for both dry materials and liquid, and certain types are even certified for the shipment and storage of hazardous materials. At Air Sea Containers, we have 55-gallon drums and more to meet all of your bulk shipping needs.
Plastic shipping containers are, by far, the most popular option. An ideal choice for shipping and storing liquids, they also work well for dry goods, including food items, clothing, etc. Plastic drums are reusable and are lighter than steel shipping totes. This makes them an excellent choice when you want to save some money on shipping costs.
Steel shipping containers are extremely durable, and they are the product of choice for storing and shipping hazardous liquids, including gases, solvents and chemicals. If you plan to use your shipping drums for hazardous materials, be sure to choose UN-certified shipping containers for legal and safety purposes.
Lastly, cardboard barrels and fiberboard drums are intended for solids. UN-certified fiberboard drums are suitable for hazmat shipping. Lighter than plastic and steel shipping containers, they are the most affordable option in terms of shipping costs. However, they are not as durable as other materials.
At Air Sea Containers, we stock a wide range of shipping drums, barrels and totes for every application. We also offer a variety of drum accessories. Browse our website today to find the products you need for bulk shipping and storage.
