I had quite a few boxes (ten to be exact) going to one customer via UPS.. I
use a company that is a pick up point for UPS... The weight of the total
shipment was 25 pounds short of 200 lbs.. The clerk informed me that I
would save if I was shipping 200 lbs vs 175 lbs to the one location. So
some scrap would was boxed up on site to be shipped and presto... I was at
the 200 lb discount rate and the cost of the shipping was nearly cut in
half!!!! No kidding...Marshall
