I have 5 queens on the way and its going to rain for the next three days. How long can you keep a Queen in the shipping container?

The real question is how long do you want to risk keeping them in the cage? Will they have attendants?

I would add that if you have to keep her banked for a while, make sure you use honey that you know is safe/free from disease. Sugar water is safer. Make sure the container is adequately ventilated. I put mine in a nuc box between a couple frames of foundation. J
