Managing the transportation and delivery of cable and wire is a part of a total project management solution. It is one of the many aspects of project management that can be outsourced to a qualified partner.
The secret of shipping wires, cables and tubes safely and securely is to pack properly and send shipment promptly.
Wire, cable and tubing can be packaged for shipment in various ways depending on the type of product and the intended use. The cable and tubing manufacturing industry has developed standards for the packaging of cable and tubing for transport. Packaging for postage may include poly bags, heat-shrink tubing, spools, spools with dispenser reels, and bulk boxes.
Poly bags are the most economical type of packaging when posting small quantities of wire and cable. They can also be used as a temporary package for sending small spools of cable and tubing. Poly bags may be made of a variety of materials, including recycled materials. For large spools of cable and tubing, poly bags can be used as a permanent or semi-permanent packaging.
Heat-shrink tubing is a protective coating that is applied to wire and cable. It shrinks when heated to fit the wire or cable for protection against abrasion, moisture, dirt, and other contaminants.
Spools are used to package large quantities of wire and cable, as well as tubing, for sending. They are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials. Spools are commonly used to transport and manage small-diameter wire and cable. They are available in plastic or wood, with or without dispenser reels. Spools are used both as permanent packaging for small quantities of wire and cable, and as temporary packaging for larger quantities of cable.
Dispenser reels are spools mounted on a spindle from which cable or tubing can be pulled as needed. Reels are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials. Reels are commonly used for packaging and sending small-diameter wire and cable.
Bulk boxes contain small spools of cable or tubing. They are commonly used for sending small-diameter wire and cable for delivery. Bulk boxes are made of plastic or wood and contain a cover and a handle.
Postage rates for wire and cable depend upon the size of the cable, its type and its packaging. Cable or wire is usually transported in cartons or spools, although wires of a certain diameter may arrive on individual spools.
When transporting large quantities of wires or cables, you may be able to receive a discount for the purchase of spools or cartons for postage. It is possible to save money on some shipping costs by bundling your cable with other products.
When ordering wire or cable, you may have to pay for shipping costs before you can receive your product. If you are ordering large quantities of cable, you may be able to save time on shipping by receiving your order in more than one shipment.
If you are shipping your wire or cable to a business address, you may save money by choosing to ship it via courier services, rather than by transporting via the postal service.
