Although we've shipped and received reptiles and amphibians for a long time via FedEx, we were informed today that:

1. Via policy, we needed to sign a waiver and have it on file releasing FedEx from any responsibility for DOA's, and
2. Via policy, they only ship from business to business.

I've had an account with them for a long time and have never run into this. I spoke with two middle managers to try to get an exception just for this shipment and was told that they did not have the authority to do that. When I told them that they ship hundreds of reptiles and amphibians around the country every day, I was told that "we probably ship lots of drugs too, but that doesn't mean its ok."

We've also used Delta Dash for years with relatively little trouble. Guess we'll be looking for another shipper to replace FedEx.
