What is Flat Rate Freight Shipping?

For our customers that require freight carrier shipments, PSC now offers Flat Rate Shipping for select locations in the Northeastern United States. These shipping rates are tiered, based on the total weight of your product selection. For example, any product combination under 2,000 lbs. will ship for a low rate of $95.00.

While shipping a 55 gallon drum for $95.00 is already an attractive deal, adding three more drums for no additional cost provides even more value.

That is, any product(s), any combination -- $95.00, as long as the scale reads 2,000 lbs. or less:

  • Up to (4) 55 gallon drums (about 470 lbs. each)
  • Up to (48) 5 gallon pails (about 41 lbs. each)
  • Up to (80) 12/1 quart cases (about 25 lbs. each) OR, Mix & Match!
  • (1) 55 gallon drum, (20) 5 gallon pails, (20) 12/1 quart cases:
