Postal USPS: Our most used method for small items. A variety of flat rate boxes available that range from sending bolts to drum brakes or similar heavier mid size objects, they are sent 2-Day Priority and start at $8
FedEx Ground: Our most used method for items such as transmissions and other large items. FedEx Ground rates range widely depending on the weight, we are happy to give quotes regarding shipments.
FedEx Express: Our most used method for International shipments as well as rush shipments, much more expensive than Ground, also ranging widely depending on weight.
LTL Truck: Our most used method for large shipments over 150 pounds. The carrier depends on your location within the U.S. and this method can be cheaper than Ground depending on the combined weight of the items.
Air Freight: (Not to your door, but pick up at airport) We are designated as a “Known Shipper” with TAS. We are able to ship air freight shipments directly with airlines that we have accounts with on outgoing shipments both domestic and international. The cost savings we are able to provide with this type of shipping cost has at least a 50% savings over Federal Express and UPS. This savings is especially beneficial for our customers in Hawaii and Alaska and US Possessions. The shipments in the domestic market must be picked up at the air cargo terminal at the airport with no further cost to the customer
International shipments are shipped to the nearest international airport convenient for the customer. We prepare all of the customs papers. The process for international customers is as follows. We provide the tracking air bill number and the customer takes this to the air cargo terminal, presents the air-bill number with Identification. They are give a copy of the air-bill which they take to their local customs office at the airport, the customs office with charge the duty and local taxes that are required no matter who carries the shipment, once these fees are paid they take the customs clearance stamped air-bill to the air cargo terminal and the shipment is released with no further charges or you can have a broker do the same thing for a fee on top of the taxes and duty
You would be doing you own clearance on your shipment, it is a very simple process which saves a lot of money

American Air Cargo, Delta Air Cargo, Alaska Air Cargo, Hawaiian Air Cargo
For large shipments including differential assemblies, wide body planes are needed, some routes do not have wide body planes
