TOPIC: Packaging for Shipment

Packaging for Shipment 3 years 1 month ago #30571

What would be the best way to package roots for shipment so that they are not damaged? I thought about arranging in several layers with bubble wrap in a box so one layer does not touch another or individually wrapping each root. Its only about 6 ounces of roots. Will be shipped USPS priority mail.

For dry ginseng, I start with a layer of peanuts then a plastic bag in which the roots go. I make sure to leave about 2 inches or more on all sides and fill this with peanuts as I fill the bag with ginseng.

Brad,

I have never shipped Ginseng roots, so I did not want to comment. Also, I was unsure as to whether the O.P. was referring to dried or green roots. If you have a method for shipping green roots, maybe you could post it as well. It may be beneficial to others seeking the information!

Thanks!
