I was told by a company that their particular beans they use in a particular roast were held up in Customs for 4-6 weeks.  Wouldn't they arrive to the roaster stale in that amount of time?

Not necessarily. Unroasted beans can last for over a year without any major changes! Worry not!

 
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

I agree, it is AFTER roasting that the short time clock starts running. a month or two at customs isn't a big deal if the beans are "green"

Would it depend what sort of temperature the beans were held in? What if they were left in extreme cold / hot? Does this change things?
