Shipping Beverages Made Easy
We’ve helped thousands of businesses and individuals all over the world get their goods from point A to point B faster and smarter.
Nearly all stores and business establishments offer the option to purchase bottled water or beverages. And with such convenient items readily available, most of us only think about the supply chain process if we are the shipper. Though seemingly simple, shipping bottled water and beverages, there is an entire logistics process behind the water bottles lining the shelves. Determining efficient logistics for bottled water/beverages can be a challenge to complete independently, so partnering with FreightCenter as your 3PL (Third Party Logistics Provider) can make the process a breeze from start to finish!

How to Ship Beverages
Deciding the quantity you intend to ship before packaging your beverage shipment is essential. Calculating both the quantity and weight of your shipment is unavoidable. Any carrier or 3PL must know this basic information to fulfill your shipment and deliver the best rate. With these crucial details, your shipment process can be optimized. Once complete, move on to the inspection process!
Like with any shipment, inspecting the beverages you are shipping first is essential to check for any damages. During that inspection process, ensure all drinks are tightly sealed to prevent leakage. Also, remember that bottles tends to be durable; it is still essential to ensure the packaging encasing it is secure. Choose sturdy and leakproof packaging, such as corrugated boxes, to ship the liquids. There are different corrugated cardboard boxes, so choose the leakproof kind.
Another way to help ensure safe transport is to use dividers or cardboard inserts to separate bottles and keep them from moving around. Make sure to ask questions when booking a shipment with a FreightCenter agent; they are here to ensure you meet the packaging requirements set forth by your carrier.
