FEDERAL EXPRESS AND POST OFFICE CONTRACTUAL AGREE ON CARRING LIVES

Federal Express and the US post office have reached a contractual agreement on carrying “LIVES”. Starting on September 25, Federal Express has taken over the routs previously served by Kitty Hawk (see below for a listing). This is a contractual arrangement through the post office only as Federal Express will not take “LIVE” shipments directly. You will need to deliver your birds to a post office – not a Federal Express Office. If you experience any problems with this new service, please contact your postal official, not Federal Express.
At the present time the Post Office will only have Federal Express transport “LIVES” to and from the USPS AMFs listed below. As Federal Express gains more experience, other AMFs will be added to the routs. The full Priority Mail Network effective date has yet to be determined. Commercial airlines are still carrying lives.
BSA is still working to put the temperature guidelines in place by regulation or legislation. BSA is also investigating the problems that shippers have experienced with insurance. We will keep you posted on our progress.
