Ordering Film from overseas US to Europe and XRay




I am considering to order a 20-pack of Velvia 100F from a New York based dealership and have it shipped to my address here in Europe. Does anyone know if carriers (UPS, FedEx or USPS) scan the pack with X-Ray so that it will possibly destroy my films? Thanks!




I have asked several times and have shipped film many times through Fed Ex. They say that their packages are not xrayed. I have never had a problem with any film shipped with them, nor from what I have gathered has B&H out of New York who ships thousands of rolls of film via fed Ex. I always ask for signature delivery so the film doesn't sit on my doorstep if I am gone.
