Barrel shipping wasn’t just invented a few years back. Hundreds of years ago, when the British had control of the Caribbean, all the products like sugar, rum, wood and other stuff used to be transported to the Caribbean islands in wooden barrels.
Even these days, there is a dedicated barrel service which ships goods to all Caribbean islands from Jamaica to Barbados and every other inhabited island. Shipping goods using Drums has become very popular in many other areas of the world as well these days.
The UK to Pakistan trade goes back a long way, even before the independence when the sub-continent was not divided. These days, more than a million Pakistanis who call the UK their home send all kinds of stuff to their relatives and friends in Pakistan. A lot of them choose barrels to ship their goods. But, the key thing is knowing why Barrel shipping rose to prominence and why it is still used so often even after centuries.
In cargo services, barrels are of great importance. Even these days, a lot of trade between the UK and the West Indies occurs with the help of barrels. Even Pakistani-Brits send items in drums. This is due to the reason that barrels are way more secure than traditional boxes and containers. They provide a lot of protection against water, rain and other natural hazards.
If wooden barrels are used, they provide insulation against colder weather to items inside the barrel when the climate gets rough, cold and dry outside. Nearly all of the barrels are sent via ocean freight but some are also transported via air freighters.
It is very important to choose what barrel fits the cargo that you are sending perfectly. A lot depends on the kind of cargo that is being sent and its characteristics. There are two popular sizes of barrels available for shipping goods; the 55 gallon drum and the 30 gallon drum. Both are plastic drums and their durability is exemplary. You can choose any of the two barrels to make sure which one suits you best, and then you can use that barrel size accordingly.
Barrels have many advantages. The first advantage is that they’re sealed properly, which ensures that water, air and any pollution can’t enter the barrel. They also act as insulators, so cold or hot climate can’t really have any impact on the goods inside. Barrels are extremely portable too. They can be easily moved from one place to another by simply rolling them over unlike square containers which can only be moved with the help of cranes.
