What kind of barrel is this and what's inside. If this is any kind of alcohol or food substance you'll need help because there will be all kinds of documentation and permits involved.

You're best off asking for quotes from freight forwarding services asking for a spot quote on an LTL shipment. This basically means you'll be secured space in a container of other goods routing to the same Caribbean ports. They can help with the details and if necessary arrange all transportation to door. This might not be cheap but it will be far easier than trying to do this alone.

Type and size of cargo matters. If this is just a small barrel of non regulated cargo then bring it to your local UPS or DHL office.

Tell me you don’t know what you’re talking about without telling me you don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s very common for Caribbean immigrants to ship non-perishable food and other supplies in barrels (drums) to their families back home in the Caribbean.

UPS and DHL are not options. 😂

OP is asking for a freight forwarding service. I personally go to NYC for better rates. Don’t know any in JC, unfortunately.

I know of Denis shipping in Brooklyn but its all the way in Flatbush my old neighborhood was trying to see if there's a closer option. Was trying to avoid renting a car and toll etc.
