Seafood Shipping

We ship all our fresh seafood products by UPS.  Saturday Delivery available at an additional cost of $16.00. No deliveries may be made on Sunday or Monday.


Your order will be shipped directly from Woodman’s of Essex for delivery on the date you specify.

All seafood is packaged in specially designed insulated foam boxes with frozen gel packs. The foam box is set in a corrugated box for shipment. All packages are packed very carefully to prevent damage during shipping.


Weather Delay

Weather delays can be unexpected, and can result in the delay of your package.  In the event that this should happen, we will make every effort to notify you on the status of your shipment.  In some cases we may know of a weather delay just before we are about to ship your package.  In the event this happens we will email you to discuss a potential rescheduling of your product to a later date.  That is why your email address is an important part of the ordering process.

Shipping Restrictions

We are unable to ship to APO/FPO, P.O. Boxes, Rural Routes & destinations outside of the Continental United States.  If you are unsure if your address can be shipped, please contact us prior to placing your order or obtain an alternate address that is a physical business or residential location.

Address Correction

Please ensure you enter in the proper address for us to ship your package(s).  Incorrect addresses can also cause delays and additional shipping charges for rerouting.  We will not be held responsible for the spoilage of shipments should this occur.  Rerouted shipments/address corrections may take an additional day to deliver putting its “freshness” in jeopardy.

Authorized Release

Note, we ship all packages “Authorized Release” which means if no one is home the package may be left without a signature. This will only occur if the carrier feels it is safe to do so, otherwise they will bring it back to their delivery station and you will be notified to pick it up there.  Please note, we do not guarantee products after the first day/attempt of delivery so it is best to make arrangements for someone to be there to receive the package.  If you are sending a “gift” or “surprise” we suggest letting the recipient know that there will be a delivery from Fed Ex.

Instruction for Handling Your Seafood Once it is Delivered

Please open your package immediately upon receipt.  If your plan is to cook the contents later in the day then take out all the seafood components and place them in refrigeration. We always suggest cooking your seafood the day it arrives.  If you have any questions regarding the instructions please feel free to call our toll-free number at 1-800-649-1773.
