How would you recommend the best way to ship the stuff?
Easy. Use a small plastic bag (like fish come in from the store), moisten a sheet of paper towelling with tank water, just to get it good and wet, and stick a small clump of duckweed in the centre and fold the towl around it. Place it in the bag, leave a bit of air, and seal the bag. It should last a few days. I have mailed higher plants across Canada with this method.
Duckweed is next to impossible to kill, so some might say the above is too fussy.
