Making Mortuary Shipping Easier

September 19, 2023

Let Our Team Handle the Complicated Logistics

When you are a funeral director, you have many important responsibilities on any given day. You are meeting with families at different stages in the funeral planning process. You are facilitating graveside arrangements and cremation services, and likely fielding questions from multiple families. You are also managing a business and a staff, and maintaining a physical building. 

You are, quite simply, busy, which is to be expected. But when you add in the challenges and complexities of mortuary shipping, you can quickly find yourself stretched too thin.

Making mortuary shipping arrangements, either domestically or internationally, can be a cumbersome task. When you are shipping human remains across any distance, there are logistical challenges that can arise—coordinating with airlines, handling necessary permits and paperwork, dealing with delays and cancellations, and so on. There are also various regulations and requirements for mortuary shipping in different countries and states. 

These intricacies can be extremely time-consuming for funeral homes—and non-compliance can result in delays or even legal issues. The stakes are already high, and there is always the risk of mishandling or errors during the shipping process. If something were to go wrong, it could be very distressing for the family and damaging to your funeral home’s reputation.
