Shipping wow

I know Granger is generally high priced but has everything. I bought an item via Granger because they had a decent price for it.

It is a 20' long drainage pipe which will have to be shipped to me freight. The freight cost me $78 and Grainger simply placed an order with the supplier at what ever cost they negotiated. Tracking said ABS freight was the shipper. But ABS contracted with another shipper to carry the pipe to UPS freight for delivery. Just seemed cool to me that one shipper who got a contract could probably make money moving the shipment through two other carriers without having to do anything other then find another carrier and all for $78. Maybe my shipment is a loss to ABS because they were not able to handle it themselves and had to go to others for help? Might ABS maybe take a loss on my shipping to keep a major shipping contract with Granger?

Now it's the future to see if they put my item on a small enough semi trailer to be able to make it down my winding dead end. ... :)
