  FedEx Heavy = "pay a surcharge for heavy boxes, get it moved by a 120
  pound delivery person with a handtruck rather than a pallet jack or
  other appropriate freight handling equipment... and dropped off the
  truck".  My experience is a 40% damage rate when shipping Cisco 7507
  and 7513 routers via FedEx Heavy.  Here are some pictures from back
  when I was at AboveNet: http://www.seastrom.com/fedex/

You aren't alone:
