How We Ship

Preferred Method 1

Preferred Method 1

Preferred Method 1 consists of a single reel standing on its side. The reel is then banded to a cradle. This method is for heavy reels from 24” through 96” and is for single reels only.

Preferred Method 2

Preferred Method 2

Preferred Method 2 consists of multiple reels standing on their sides. These reels are then banded to a cradle. This method is for heavy reels from 36” down to 18” and can hold 2-6 reels depending on the reel and cradle used.

 

Alternative Method 1

Alternative Method 1

Alternative Method 1 consists of a reel laying flat, banded to a pallet. This method is only acceptable when a cradle is not readily available. The cable should be tightly covered with stretch wrap to prevent cascading and used for 48” or smaller.

Alternative Method 2

Alternative Method 2

Alternative Method 2 consists of two same or mixed sized reels. These reels are double stacked and banded to a pallet. This method is only acceptable if a cradle isn’t readily available. The cable should be tightly covered with stretch wrap to prevent cascading and used for 48” or smaller.

Alternative Method 3

Alternative Method 3

Alternative Method 3 consists of three same or mixed sized reels. These reels are stacked and banded to a pallet. This method should be avoided if possible and is only acceptable if a cradle option isn’t readily available. However, this method may be necessary to prevent multiple skids for international shipping. The cable should be tightly covered with stretch wrap to prevent cascading and used for 48” or smaller.


Cascaded Cable

Cascaded Cable

Cable that is shipped flat on a pallet has the potential to cascade or fall away from the top flange. This creates a gap, which can cause problems during the de-reeling process.
