fire large payloads out of gas guns( with parachute)(FAA aprroved) acceleration very fast therfore only unsensetive products. humans are shipped in cryo status. paylods are launched to shipping stations landing fields. the paylods are sorted and delviered by hand. very large objects can be launced!

this makes overseas shipping easier. these stations will be as common as airports search for "The Jules Verne Gun" online

       So this is some sort of a "Ballistic Delivery Service." It seems like a good idea.

       Surely this is madness. "Small farm destroyed by 10,000 Christmas cards. Hungover postal worker apologies to families of victims". Hang on I've had an idea...

       Loads of stuff. Anything powdery, anything fluid, large blocks of stuff that it doesn't matter if it breaks, such as resin. The USPS tried it with letters though and it didn't work very well. See link.

       [nineteenthly], I think that your annotation was pre-empted by the previous two annotations.
They missed out porridge oats by the way.
