Replenishment of Dry Ice Is Possible While in Transit
Depending on how you ship dry ice can be replenished while in transit in case of a carrier issue or customs delay. The availability of dry ice replenishment during shipping varies with express carriers, but when using a specialty cold chain service such as Mercury's, it is possible to refill the dry ice during transit.
The Right Shipment Method
When choosing a shipping method, it is important to assess the importance of your shipment. For high-value, crucial shipments that cannot be replaced, it is advisable to use a specialty cold chain service or a same-day courier. On the other hand, routine, low-value shipments with dry ice can typically be sent through express carriers, particularly if they are within the same country.
Below is a general guide on which shipment method to use but we recommend to consult with an expert should you have any questions.
