Larrivee recommends leaving the strings strung to normal pitch. their reasoning is that there is a balance between the tension in the trus rod, and the strings. loosen the strings, and now the truss rod is too tight... and so on.

I googled the phrase 'shipping a guitar' and came up with many more suggestions than can be listed here.  Try it.
