I'm getting pretty doggone fed up with the USPS losing packages and taking so long delivering packages.

Does anyone use Fedex to ship shrimp?

Can paypal be used to create fedex labels?

Do you use the fedex boxes? If so, what size?

i think i read somewhere that fed ex does not accept live fish
Not correct at all. In fact MOST overnight live fish deliveries are done via fedex because they'll guarantee delivery by 10:30am. Only once has fedex missed the 10:30 mark with me, and I called 5 minutes after and the package was delivered 10 minutes later when I explained it was a live package and fragile. Driver rerouted for me :D I felt ecstatic with fedex at that moment.

I think i got that info from the fed ex website "vLive Animals

FedEx does not accept live animal shipments as part of its regularly scheduled service. Live animals will be accepted when the shipment is coordinated and approved by the FedEx Live Animal Desk. Acceptable shipments include, but are not limited to, zoo animals (to and from zoo locations only) and horses (from gateway to gateway locations only). Household pets, such as domestic cats and dogs, and live fish are not accepted. For more information, contact the FedEx Live Animal Desk at 1.800.405.9052."

Best best is to call them

That's hilarious then ;) I say that because they deliver huge styrofoam boxes to my house that have LIFE FISH marked all over it, monthly :D

Seems like info that hasn't been updated given the amount of fedex live fish shipments sent out daily.

edit: this is the best logic I found:

any company that has an account with FedEx is allowed to ship live animals, especially those who are in the fish business. In order to ship live animals, either the shipper, or the receiver must have an account with FedEx.


So long as you have a Fedex account you can ship live animals.
