I think FEDEX was tossing it around based on the outer box being dented and tape torn off.
Half expected missing parts thinking someone opened it.
If only people knew what their boxes could go through.
Back when I first started at ups one day they put me loading trailers. So I stood under a conveyer belt that was about fifteen feet in the air and ended at a metal chute. The boxes fell from this metal chute into a big pile. I was told to stand back and wait until the boxes made a pile and started to get to the edge before I started picking them up. So nothing would fall on me and hurt me. Safety first!
Every now and then a small but heavy box would fall and just crunch everything.
That was a long time ago and they've improved a lot. But still, if your box goes through an old center? I just tell people if your box can't survive being dropped from waist height several times, then repack it.
