: I think it would be very difficult (and that's being generous) to start an overnight/express shipping business centered on shipping herps.

: Here's an idea: develop a container for shipping herps, and get it approved by the carriers so that they will accept herps if you use the approved containers.

: The only problem with that is they ship so many herps without knowing it right now I don't see much incentive for people to switch.

: But, assuming you did successfully start a herp shipping business, I would use it.


i just wanted to update i think that if a company could maintain correct temps in the delivery vehicles then you really wouldnt need an overnight delivery you could push that out to about 2 days and still maintain the health of the herps

thanks to all for the responses!
