I don't. Just like with any other heavy item I'd do the following:

1. Wrap it in paper so that I could wind a few strips of tape around it to
keep the top and bottom halves from flapping (it's hinged).

2. Wrap it in bubble wrap.

3. Fill the bottom of a box with foam peanuts, or use some good foam
blocks if I had any available.

4. Place the terminal in the center of the box.

5. Fill in more foam or peanuts.

6. Make sure it was tight and does not shift at all.

7. Tape shut securely.

It helps to use a very sturdy box (like for a 17" monitor).
