Shipping isn’t a matter of life or death. Well, sometimes it is.

Case study: Pacific East Aquaculture

When you ship live, exotic coral — an endangered animal — you put a lot of faith in your shipper. Pacific East Aquaculture is the largest indoor coral farm and reef livestock retail and wholesale operation in the U.S. From their state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled aquaculture community in Mardela Springs, MD, they sell coral to hobbyists and reefkeepers, who maintain elaborate habitats in their homes or businesses. At retail, one coral can cost thousands of dollars. Once removed from a natural habitat, coral can live 36–48 hours in ideal conditions. Which means shipping is crucial to Pacific East. That’s why they trust the shipping and protection of high-value packages to UPS Capital®.
