Consolidated FedEx or UPS account?

I've tried looking through pages of threads, but I can't seem to locate any of the topics. I found one previously and I wanted to check it out, but it seems my bookmark disappeared :(

There are companies out there that offer considerable cheaper shipping options using their FedEx or UPS account due to the volume they ship out. Does anyone know of one (or a couple) of these companies?

Thanks in advance!

[edit] I found one through searching the forums called netParcel. Their rates definitely are cheaper for Express, but they don't offer Ground-style shipping. :(

Thanks! Looks like netParcel has the better rates.

Taking into account I was looking for a Ground service, and since FedEx Ground isn't offered, the next best thing was UPS Standard. I am looking to send a package to Irvine, CA (92614) with the following dimensions (inches) 32x26x6 and a dimension weight of 42lbs. netParcel's rate was $~53 where eshipper was $~65 - not a huge difference, but definitely cheaper.
