Before sending brownies to friends and family, check the delivery company that will be handling your order. In most cases this will be the post office. Check with them for the best ways to ship. In warm seasons brownies are best shipped overnight in a Styrofoam container where the brownies are surrounded by ice packs. Many shipping companies use dry ice but that may be little expensive.
Tried and tested: If you’re not sure how well you have packed the brownies and how safe they are to ship, you can test the pack at home. Place the brownies in a container and shake it a few times. If the brownies are moving then you have to re-pack. After you have filled the empty spaces, shake it again. When it holds the shape than your shipping consignment is perfect. But before packing mail order brownies, put then in front of fan so that the extra moisture is evaporated.
Wrapping is the key: Place Mail order brownies in aluminum foil or plastic before placing in shipping containers.
