Shipping Survey

August 2, 2005
Dear BSA Member:
As all of us are very much aware 2005 has been, for many of us, a very difficult year to ship our birds. There have been numerous complications – some of which have been solved and others of which still need a great deal of work.
Our organization has been contacted by one of the major airlines. They are interested in the possibility of carrying more of our industries “lives” then they presently have the opportunity to carry. At this infant stage, they are very optimistic about exploring this additional business. I know this sounds very encouraging, and it is, but like everything else in this industry it will take some time to develop.
They have asked us for some information concerning our group’s shipping history which will aid them in deciding the feasibility of such. If you would please take this opportunity to complete the very brief survey below it will be of great benefit to us. I am sorry, but we need to have this survey returned to us prior to August 12th so we can tabulate figures for the airline. Please be as accurate as possible.
Thank you very much for your cooperation in this most important matter.
Sincerely,
Murray J. McMurray, Chairman BSA
