There are dry ship dewars that can be sent via FedEx and UPS (the  
crystallographic community has used this approach to send samples to  
send samples to synchrotron sources  for a number of years).  The only  
issue we have encountered is when the FedEx delivery person has  
dropped the dewar off the back of the truck and can't understand that  
all of the samples are ruined even though the dewar itself has only a  
minor external dent.
