The New Milkmen Delivers.

We take our job here at box brothers seriously. When we got a call to pack and ship breast milk from city center we were suspicious of this new territory. The job is quick work for us though, since we build foam lined boxes all the time. The hardest part of getting something frozen across the country is keeping it that way without actually solidifying the liquid. The first step is to determine the amount of interior space needed. Next you have to build a styrofoam lined box and get the dry ice ready. It is very important to wrap the dry ice in kraft paper so the ice will not crack the bottles of milk and make a huge mess plus an angry customer. Surround the bottles with the papered dry ice and make sure the item is secured with enough paper. Last important tip is to not exceed 5.5 lbs of dry ice otherwise it is considered a hazardous material deemed by UPS. Seal up the box and shake it lightly, if you feel anything rattling around pack some more paper in the box until tight. Close and seal the box, then send it overnight priority! We have done 8 shipments so far including: MGM, Wynn, City Center, Planet Hollywood and every single one of them arrived on time and safely. We keep babies happy and full! So if you are ever in the Vegas area and are staying away from your kids, give us a call and we will make sure they are fed.

We are the future of milkmen!
