Jay, Mark, et al.
I always thought the standard (cheapest) ground rate for UPS and Fed X was about 5 business days from coast to coast. Are you guys saying:
1) No, the standard cheapest ground is only THREE days, coast to coast? ( I don't recall that being the case in my experience)

2) Axiom pays extra for 3rd day air via UPS, Fed Ex or what ever carrier they use? If this is the case, Jay's statement that it is three days unless it misses a transfer somewhere, would fit.

Re-reading Jay's post, it seems he believes it is #1. Hmmmmn...

OK, Shipping time aside, as it will be what it will be, How long did it take from when you ordered for your FO's to SHIP...

That is the bottom line question. I have heard 'general statements' that it can be sooner. Good, but what was 'your' experience?

Mark, with your crack history, you are excused from being expected to remember, well, even your own name actually. ;\)

Crack issue? Did you work with Joe the plumber? \:D

No you are right, The cheapest is ground usually 4-5 days.
It is just my understanding and experience that the shipments generally make it cross country via ground in 2 - 3 days and add one more for final processing and delivery, if the shipment makes it in 2 then you could theoretically have it delivered on the 3rd day. Purolator up here is generaly 4 or less, especially on Friday shipped items. It will be there by Monday AM.{hint, hint} or at least in the recent past this has been the case. Most times Fed Ex Ground and UPS Ground do take the full 5 days. Although I have had them deliver in 3 or 4.

Pretty much anything shipped air by UPS, FED EX and Purolator is for overnight shipments, not 3 days and boy do you pay for it.
