I am new to shipping and have only just started getting my feet wet. I was wondering at what tempertures does everyone ship at or not ship at? Nice weather is coming and I have a ton of people that have been asling me to ship. Thank you in advanced.

Somehwat... Still unsure as to at what temps to use what and how many pack. Like 40-60 use x amount of xhr heat packs and like wlat what temps to just not ship at all together

Also what size boxes... Perhaps it will end up being trial and error. I think Ive pretty got the jist of it. Its mainly the temps and what and how many packs if any to use. I know the packs are oxygen activated and Ive seen some conflicting info about poking 2-4 pencil sized holes in box around pack/packs

This thread may be useful. I know it’s corals but as far as temp control and packing, it’s useful.

when i was shipping Berghia i went till about -15c
i used a box like this https://amzn.to/2I4kxQg, and a 40+ hr heat pack https://amzn.to/2TicTqQ obviously larger boxes would require a second or maybe third pack. i would wrap the heat pack loose in 1 layer of newspaper to avoid direct contact with anything but till allow gas flow and stick it to the lid, spaces were filled with newspaper. i think they most important part is going to be which company you use and how their side of logistics works which is hard to know. you may want to setup a test outside and see how your chosen setup handles the cold over a day, or even better get a cheap temp logger for a few dollars and ship it somewhere. youll be able to recover the max and min temps your package saw
