[Histonet] transporting sectioned tissues

I have brain tissue sectioned and kept in cryopreservative in -20C in
24-well plates but need to take it all to another state when I move. I'm
considering using 50ml falcon brand tubes topped to the brim with
cryoprotectant to transport them in a checked bag. Is it necessary to keep
these vials cold, such as with dry-ice? How have others transported
sectioned tissues before?
