I agree with the answers above, but one thing not mentioned is that every so ofter with Priority Mail a package will get misplaced and not show for up to 5 days or more. This happens more often than you think and I have been using Priority Mail in my other business for 10 years so I speak from experience. This does not occur with Express Mail.

I tend to let the customer decide with shrimp, but encourage Express with rarer more delicate shrimp. Winter shipments out of the Southwest can get very cold VERY FAST when it is below zero outside and express is always best in my opinion under these conditions.

Percentage wise? 80% of my shrimp go out Priority Mail and I rarely ever see a DOA. I do however worry some over shipments to the East Coast from here in AZ, but so far so good.

Cheers, Bill
