BSA has consistently taken the position that Federal Express was covered by the statute that mandates that any airline that has a mail contract with the USPS must carry “day-old chicks and such other live animals as postal regulations allow” unless the carrier “commonly and regularly refuses to accept any live animals as cargo.”
BSA has demonstrated to the USPS that Federal Express does, in fact, accept live animals as cargo (with the exception of dogs, cats and bees.) The United States Postal Service now agrees with BSA and has informed Federal Express that within sixty (60) days it must accept live animals for air mail delivery.
We will keep you informed of the progress of this most important work.
