Parcel Shipping

Effective March 26, UPS suspended UPS Service Guarantee for all shipments. Commitment times for UPS Next Day Air AM® and UPS 2nd Day Air A.M.® services will be extended to end-of-day. If the location is closed, UPS will hold your shipment and attempt to complete the delivery at a later date indicated to UPS that it will re-open within 9 days, however, if the location is closed UPS will return the package to the sender. Please visit for complete updates. American Canning is not responsible for returned shipments; customers will be responsible for replacement shipping charges.

LTL Shipping

We are seeing long transit times with some LTL carriers. Accurate contact information and delivery hours are required to ensure timely deliveries. Guaranteed service options have been suspended until further notice. American Canning is requesting "Call Before Delivery" for all freight orders to help ensure delivery.

Damage Policy

If a pallet/product arrives damaged, please DO NOT reject the shipment. With limited supply across many products, we cannot guarantee immediate replacements nor offer a refund until an official claim has been processed. Damage of up to two percent should be anticipated in transit due to the sensitive nature of cans. Damage in excess of two percent should be documented with photos at the time of receiving and noted on the BOL, as well as communicated to the carrier driver and American Canning as soon as possible. The best course of action is to accept the can pallet, note total damage, communicate with our sales support team and we will work to offer a credit/replacement (pending supply availability) for the damaged cans.
