Since Priority Mail Express is the only way for a person or organization to ship cremated remains, the Postal Service has created a Cremated Remains Kit to make it easier for customers to ship the cremated remains of a loved one or pet safely and securely from one destination to another. This kit is free, and each box is printed with the words “Cremated Remains” in a bright color, to increase visibility. The box is reinforced and sturdy, which ensures the safety and security of the irreplaceable package contents. All of the necessary packaging materials are included in the kit, providing peace of mind that the remains are safe during processing and handling.
The kit contains:
- 1 Priority Mail Express Cremated Remains box - 1 Roll of Priority Mail Express Tape: 1-7/8” x 22’
Each Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express shipment includes USPS Tracking® service service.
