Storage
1. The cable drums shall be stored on a well drained, hard surface, so that the drums do not sink in the ground causing rot and damage to the cable drums. Paved surface is preferred, particularly for long term storage.
2. The drums shall always be stored on their flanges, and not on their flat sides.
3. Both ends of the cables especially of PILCA cables should be properly sealed to prevent ingress/ absorption of moisture by the insulation during storage.
4. Protection from rain and sun is preferable for long term storage for all types of cables. There should also ventilation between cable drums.
5. During storage, periodical rolling of drums once in, say, 3 months through 90 degrees shall be done, in the case of paper insulated cables. Rolling shall be done in the direction of the arrow marked on the drum.
6. Damaged battens of drums etc. should be replaced as may be necessary.
 
Handling
1. When the cable drums have to be moved over short distances, they should be rolled in the direction of the arrow marked on the drum.
2. For manual transportation over long distances, the drum should be mounted on cable drum wheels, strong enough to carry the weight of the drum and pulled by means of ropes. Alternatively, they may be mounted on a trailer or on a suitable mechanical transport.
3. For loading into and unloading from vehicles, a crane or a suitable lifting tackle should be used. Small sized cable drums can also be rolled down carefully on a suitable ramp or rails, for unloading, provided no damage is likely to be caused to the cable or to the drum.
