RE: Cross-country shipping of large network/computer gear?

We've shipped (using Fedex International Freight) 300+lb pallets of Sun gear
without any untoward delays or problems. Multiple times. The pricing was
excellent and the service (once they knew freight was involved) was fine.

I think bad experiences with fedex have more to do with the statistical
probability of a problem occurring over x million deliveries rather than a
problem with the vendor itself.

Subject: Cross-country shipping of large network/computer gear?


I was wondering if anyone could provide any advice or suggestions on
shipping heavy/bulky equipment (~300 pounds, about a half-rack worth of
gear) on short notice cross-country?  We're obviously looking to minimize
cost, but realistically it can't be in transit for more than two
days.  Are
there any companies or methods people would recommend?  Thanks in advance
for the help.

Thanks again,
