SWA Cargo to an airport close to your location. (This is the best and least expensive way for larger longer distance orders). Please note I use a runner service to deliver the fish to the airport the afternoon prior to shipment. This service is only available Monday to Friday on non-holiday weeks with delivery occurring the next day out of BWI airport. Costs vary. Generally, one to three full boxes cost about $60 to $80 to ship by Freight Service. Most freight service orders go out of BWI on early flights unless the airline is very busy. NFG (Next Flight Guaranteed) service is also available; but, the cost is much higher. When you order is completed, I will be able to call south-west with the number of boxes used and the estimated weight and give you an estimated quote for the actual shipping cost for both Freight and NFG. It is up to you to choose which service. When I ship I will send you a Way Bill Number so you can track your shipment.
I will need the name, address, and phone number for the person picking up your fish at the SWA Cargo Unit to place on the Waybill. The person picking up the fish will need a photo ID and pay SWA Cargo for their shipping cost by Credit Card. The person picking up the fish is responsible for collecting the shipping fee from the participants in the group order.
UPS ground or ground delivery to a business in my one-day guarantee zones is the least expensive shipping option. For groups outside of my one-day ground zone, UPS air rates, even with my discount, can be very expensive. I suggest using SWA Cargo for groups outside of my one-day ground zone to save costs.
If you are close enough to York, you can save shipping and handling by prearranging a local pick up the one day prior to your club meeting
Live Arrival Guarantee apples as long as you are using UPS One Day in Transit, SWA Cargo, CCA delivery, CCY delivery, ACLC delivery, or local pickups.
The best time to schedule a group order that needs to be shipped is between April 15 and October 15 in most areas to avoid cold weather delay problems.
