I've rooted dormant wood taken from my own trees 6 months later with no problems. Keep them stored in the refrigerator rolled in some damp paper towels and check on them every other week or so. I've had no luck with green wood except rooting in water using a method learned from member BronxFigs of this forum. It helped me save a family heirloom variety and I no longer throw away green wood from pruning or damage.
If the cuttings you're having transported were taken from a branch that was 'hardened off' they should be fine during transit. Roll them in damp paper towels and put in a Ziplock baggie. Good luck.
