I've shipped LOTS of heavy datacenter gear via FedEX cross countryb4 without
problems as well.

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.

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
there any companies or methods people would recommend? Thanks in advance
for the help.
