Transporting your deceased loved one’s cremated remains is not particularly as easy as you may think. No, you cannot simply check in the “cremains” (industry-speak for cremated remains) as carry-on baggage at the airport or just send it via the United States Postal Service (USPS) regular mail. Just as with transporting bodies, rules and regulations guide the transportation of cremated remains both locally and internationally either via air or the postal service.

When shipping cremated remains via an airline either domestically or internationally, you must make sure you meet the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirement. This means that the cremains must be transported in a security-friendly container, so it can pass the routine X-ray scan at the airport without causing a delay.

If you are traveling with the remains, check your airline's rules and regulations to make sure that they allow passengers to carry cremains as check-in baggage or carry-ons. If you are not, then check if the airline carries cremains as air cargo, and make sure that it is properly labeled. In addition, you will also need several original signed documents, such as death certificate, cremation authorization forms and receipt, and a non-contraband affidavit.

Mortuary Shipping


 Are you looking for Mortuary Shipping? Bergen Funeral Service has been providing Mortuary Shipping for many years with compassion and great customer care.

Mortuary shipping can be complicated and is generally done with some assistance, especially with things like planning for the remains of loved ones to be sent back to the family. To pull this off, you might need the aid of someone who has the experience in setting up and executing these complex arrangements.

 It can be really destabilizing when issues with mishandling during the shipping process of remains occurs. It can lead to delays or even a botched funeral arrangement, incurring more avoidable expenses for the bereaved family. This can be hard to manage for the family as they are already burdened with paying for final expenses while emotionally in turmoil.

Mortuary shipping usually comes up in situations when a loved one dies in a state or country and there arises the need to ship the body to another state or country to be cremated or buried. If one decides to have the body cremated first, it will obviously cost less but a number of families would still prefer to traditionally see their deceased loved ones and say their final goodbyes.
Our known shipper status allows our funeral directors to schedule flights for mortuary shipping whenever necessary. We also receive discounts from airlines, which we provide to the family of the deceased.

Included with the body should be the following:

·         Communicable Disease Affidavit
·         Embalmers Affidavit (on funeral home's letterhead)
·         At least two certified copies of the death certificate
·         The burial / transfer permit
·         Authorization forms

Once the body is cremated, the urn must be packed into a wooden box, and with it, the following documents are needed:

·         At least two certified copies of the death certificate
·         At least two certified copies of the cremation certificate
·         The non-contraband Affidavit (on funeral home's letterhead)
·          
The complete name, address and phone number must also be provided of the funeral home that will be receiving the cremated mortuary shipping.

International funeral shipping


Are you looking for International Funeral Shipping? Bergen Funeral Service has been offers International Funeral Shipping for many years with dignity and great customer care.

There are cases where people travel to another country and "kick the bucket" during their stay there. They die far away from home but their family and loved ones want their burial rites to be performed in their own country.

With a more mobile society, this is easy to accomplish. This is where international funeral shipping comes in.



What is international funeral shipping?
There are several international funeral shipping companies that work on the shipment process of traveling the deceased from one state line to another or one country to another. The body is embalmed or stored in dry ice to be shipped. The body is then placed in a casket or suitable container for transportation.

Mode of transportation
The remains can either be shipped by land or by air. Moving the deceased by land transportation is only effective when the distance between the locations is not too far. However, some states have laws that require the body to be embalmed before crossing state lines. There are other states that are fine with the body being refrigerated with dry ice or the usage of a refrigerated vehicle for transportation.

Air transportation is efficient when the distance between states or countries is too far. For example, transporting remains from the US to Nigeria.


A funeral home that offers funeral shipping will have to be in contact with an airline (several airline companies offer human remain cargo shipping). They register the remains and obtain airline freight fees. The remains also have to be embalmed or packed with dry ice and placed in a special air-sealed casket.

As easy as it might sound, transportation of the deceased overseas can be very complex. There are customs laws, consulate forms, import and export legislation, and logistic requirements to meet in order to process a body shipment from the US or another country to the receiving country.

Note that two funeral homes have to be involved. The first funeral home will work out the body shipment with cargo airlines and the second funeral home will receive the body shipment once it arrives safely.

What do international funeral shipping providers do?
International funeral shipping providers arrange and organize everything. The body needs to be transported internationally, they make arrangements to collect the deceased from the place of death and transport them to a funeral facility. They prepare for transportation i.e. sealer casket and an approved receiving country shipping container. They handle all the paper work and flight bookings. They make sure the transportation is speedy and develops no issues or setbacks. They also make sure the deceased gets to the receiving funeral home in one piece.

If the international funeral shipping company is very reliable and there are no complications, it takes about 5 work days to finish the whole process.
