    Who are you guys using to ship your cases?

    What was the best way to go about negotiating your shipping rates?

    I use FedEx, it's convenient for me.

    You need to have volume to negotiate better rates.

    We use UPS. They have latest pick-ups, and we can ship both Ground and Air packages at same time.
    FedEx is so weird! They have Two separate divisions that to me seems stupid as heck!

    The small boxes and Ground shipping....do not expect much of a discount.
    We ship $3000 a week with UPS and still I feel we are getting ripped off.
    We do get great discount on heavy packages and all Next Day Air shipping.

    If we start a group account, then we can all save as our weekly bill grows.
    We can get much better rates with larger volume!

    Who wants to start this with me?

    Im down, We only ship 3-4 small packages a day but we are certainly looking to grow. How would this work?

    Actually, I share my account with TD Dental in California.
    Our weekly shipping is added up together for better discount.
    We pay our own bills separately.

    Anyone can join the fun!
    I think an email to someone here at my office with your business info will be a good place to start.
    PM me for email address please.

    It depends on where I'm shipping to. For regional shipments(for me that includes CA.,NV.,AZ.,) I Golden State Overnight, https://www.gso.com/, or UPS ground, usually it's one day with them. For anything outside of my western region, my main carrier is UPS.
