The United States Postal Service? Surprisingly gentle.

After a contest winner received a destroyed prize from them, the Popular Mechanics crew decided to test and measure which carrier service was the safest for packages. The results? USPS was the most gentle among the big three (FedEx and UPS), even though it had the largest number of exchanges between checkpoints. Interesting – or telling – is one response from a carrier on how they view your precious package: “The shipping industry is an ‘industrial’ environment.” I bet. Check out the methodology and the rest of the results here. Then add in more bubble wrap before shipping next time.
