**FIRST EMAIL**/Shipping your Robot - FedEx Donation Information Available!

Greetings Teams:

The Robot Ship Deadline Date is now less than a month away!
Robot Ship Date: February 19, 2008

Please review the ***NEW ***information posted on the “Robot Shipping - Utilizing the FedEx Donation” page on our web site, located at: http://www.usfirst.org/frc_robot_shipping
This page is designed to provide you with the FedEx donation guidelines and usage information on how to ship your robot crate. Whether you are a new or returning Shipping Contact, you will want to review this page.

Please note this page is meant to supplement the 2008 Competition Manual, Section 4 - Robot Transportation and the “Shipping and Drayage” documents found on the Regional Events listing page with additional information - not to be read in lieu of it. Be sure to carefully read and understand all documents.

As always, if you have any questions please contact us at [email protected]. We hope to make your Robot shipping experience go as smoothly as possible!

Go Teams!

I’ve bolded the text above for emphasis:

Don’t be confused by the max weight of 600 lbs of crate/robot in the FedEx Donation page - that’s the weight limit for donated FedEX shipping. If your crate weighs more than 400 lbs, you are still subject to additional costs from the drayage company.
