Who's the nicest shipper?

I would like to work at Popular Mechanics. I bet you get to do all sorts of cool experiments.

After a package to a sweepstakes winner arrived in pieces, the people at Popular Mechanics tried an experiment. They shipped three packages via the big three carriers. The packages had sensers in them. Results are below. According to the magazine, "The overnight shipping industry is a modern technological and logistical wonder, but it can inflict medieval damage on parcels."
