If you pack your box with standard insulation (wrap the shrimp in the middle) it will work much better than styrofoam boxes. I only use heat packs if both ends of the shipments are below freezing for the highs and lows. Heat packs used at higher temperatures will do more harm than good, you have to keep in mind they aren't exposed to the cold for the entire time their in transit
