How can I safely transport a charcoal drawing?

What is the best way of transporting a charcoal drawing over on a long ride?The drawing is fixed with a workable fixative but im still concerned about smudging. I was thinking about rolling the piece with a protecting layer of paper on top but I'm not sure if the charcoal could 'break' off in the process of rolling.Or would it be better to transport it flat (but how exactly?).
