You'd be surprised what shipping companies have to deal with. Check out this list of the weirdest things that have been shipped. What's in the mail?

FedEx alone ships over 150,000 bouquets of flowers for Mother's Day. A Rhino, named Heidi, was once shipped from Switzerland to Dublin, Ireland to become a mother for an orphaned infant rhino. A Black Hawk helicopter weighing a massive 11,000 pounds was sent from the USA to Narita, Japan, safely tucked inside á shipping company's airplane – why didn't they just fly it? A part of the famoOus Titanic's hull (weighing 3,000 pounds) was shipped from Milan, Italy to Atlanta, Georgia, along with 90 tons of other artifacts on an international shipping company plane. A massive 504,000 bottles (630 tons) of 2004 Beaujolais Nouveau was shipped from France to Japan for wine lovers eager for the annual uncorking of the Nouveau.

Weighing in at a staggering 440,000 pounds, uShip shipped 4 Caterpillar Pipelayers for $93,400.60 - the most costly shipping ever booked with the company! But a bargain for the industry! Why did the chicken cross the road? He didn't, uShip shipped him there! Covered on Episode 5 of Shipping Wars Season 2, uShip helped to ship 3 chicken coups safely over 221 miles. Another shipment featured on Shipping Wars Season Two, in episode 2 we saw 30,000 pounds of rocks (yes, rocks!) shipped over 1800 miles.
