Shipping Guide


The guide to shipping provides reference information on the maximum amount of material allowed in an inner package (e.g. glass bottle, etc.) and an outer package (e.g. the fiberboard box) according to the appropriate regulations and the carrier’s restrictions.   In order to reduce shipping costs consider choosing inner package quantities that are not assessed a hazardous material surcharge by the carrier.  For items that are not regulated for transportation there are no carrier restrictions or surcharges.  For estimated transit times see the shipping section under Ordering Info.
