Sunday, 6/12… final update.
FedEx delivered the lobsters to my friend’s office and the box was never opened up by customs.
My friends steamed the lobsters, one at a time.(since his pot was not big enough to fit two
4-pound lobsters together)
Can I FedEx two Maine lobster from Boston to Taipei?
I frequently use FedEx for large packages/documents and
they always arrive within 50 to 55 hours after being off
at FedEx in the US.
According to the lobster guy I spoke to, 50 or even 60 hours
in a ice-pak-chilled foam container is fine for the lobsters.
The lobster in question is a 4-pounder and I’m hoping to
ship two to my buddy in Taipei.
FedEx customer service rep said it was okay, but I’d be
responsible for complying with customs/duty requirements.
However, will the Taiwanese customs official confiscate them?
If so, would it be easier if I hand carried them when I fly to
Taipei next time?
Thanks for any information!!!
