Don’t worry, many people are confused on exactly how to ship beverages. It all depends on the amount you’re shipping, as well as the type of beverages you are shipping.

You can just order the Pod, assemble it once you receive it (which is very simple and quick) pack your cans in it, and slap a shipping label on it.
If you're shipping Slim or "Sleek" style cans, you'll just need to know the amount of cans you're shipping per box, and the size of sleek cans you are shipping. We have Slim Can Pods that fit 8oz, 250ml (8.4oz), or 12oz sleek cans.

The cost all depends on the quantity being shipped, and where you are shipping it to. For instance, if you are shipping a 12 pack of beverage cans from the East Coast to the West Coast, it’s going to be considerably more expensive than shipping that same 12 pack from the East Coast to the Midwest. It's usually considerably cheaper to ship non alcoholic beverages, rather than alcoholic beverages like beer, wine or liquor. So in order to determine how expensive it is to ship beverages, you really need to know the quantity being shipped, the types of beverages being shipped, as well as the shipping location. Once you know that, you can an estimate on the shipping cost from UPS.com, Fedex.com, or USPS.com.
We can fully customize any of our Pods, any way you’d like. We can put fully custom graphics anywhere on the box. Putting your company’s logo on the box is a great way to advertise and market your beverages. Our custom printed Pods are very popular with companies shipping beverages direct to consumer, for marketing or promo packages, special event shipments, or influencer packages. We can develop artwork for you, or we can print your own artwork. For information on our customized beverage shipping boxes, visit our Custom Pods page.
Our standard lead time to ship stock (website) orders is 1-2 days. We ship all website orders via UPS. The time frame it takes to reach you all depends on where it's being shipped. If the shipping location is in the Midwest or East Coast, it'll take 1-2 days to arrive. If you're in the Central US or South, about 2-3 days to arrive. West Coast and Pacific Northwest take 4-5 days to arrive.
Custom printed orders, or large (pallet sized orders) have a slightly longer lead time to ship. The lead time to ship those types of orders depends on the quantity orders. Please contact us for those lead times.
