What you should know about transport and unloading Transport 1. When transporting drums yourself, load them onto pallets if possible. 2. Use blocks of foam to prevent damage to the drums. 3. Tie the drums securely. 4. Do not transport the drum together with edible, flammable or oxidizing materials. 5. Choose the safest route to your destination and take the right documents with you, including a transport emergency card. Make sure that the driver is informed about the content of the drums. Unloading 1. Use a concrete floor to unload the drums. 2. Do not unload near a drain. 3. If possible, use a forklift to unload. 4. Otherwise, use blocks of foam to cushion the drums when unloading. The first drum should be unloaded vertically. 5. Then there will be space to roll the next drum onto its side and carefully let it down onto the foam block. 6. Roll the drum to the storage area.
