I took 325 of them to a fundraiser once, and I had them on parchment lined sheetpans and stuck them in a cooler. I put dixie cups at the corners of each pan to support the pan above it and I wadded up parchment to take up any space between the sides of the pans and the cooler walls (so they wouldn't shift around in the cooler). If it's really hot, I'd have the bottom pan filled with ice. I wouldn't put ice directly under the pans, as it would cause them to shift as they melted.

Hello fellow Alabamian. I don't really have any tips to transport them but I do know you don't need to dip them any more than 12-24 hours in advance in this Alabama heat....learned that from doing....they will get really mushy. Can you put them in a box and put little individual square or rows of wax paper to keep them from touching each other?

I just took some over 1 1/2hrs away an I found some mini cupcake liners, they were a good size strawberry I put each strawberry in a liner and organized them in the box so that they were nice & snug not crammed that way they wouldn't move around. I made them almost right before I was leaving so I didn't have to worry about them melting. But as long as you have the ac on in the car you should do fine. Mine do!
