Domestic Shipments

Most of our shipments across the full transceiver family and all network platforms can ship overnight. We respect our customers' strategic implementation timelines, and have saved them millions with our fast delivery (vs having them wait for an OEM to deliver). We can often ship overnight with a 4pm PST order submission. Larger shipments can take a day to ship, and orders of 1000+ pieces can usually ship within 2-3 business days.

To determine shipping times and rates, simply select the quantity and part(s) needed in the checkout process and click for an estimated shipping rate based on the method selected. Approved's pre-negotiated FedEx™ rates are calculated on the weight of the product (s) selected.

Our customers can easily use their own shipper number and carrier, but we must enter them manually and not through the site check-out. Please send us an email if this is the case.

International Shipments

WE SHIP FAST! Most International Orders arrive within 2-3 DAYS!

We drop ship worldwide to virtually any address serviced by UPS™, DHL™, or FedEx™. Even with international shipping fees and tariffs, our abroad customers have us drop ship to their data center buildouts for maximum savings while ensuring quality. Customers from Europe, Asia, Africa/Middle East, and Latin America receive their products by air transport within 2-3 days of order.

Import duties and shipping are paid for by the customer. After VAT, import and shipping costs are added, the customer still typically saves hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Our primary shipping carrier is FedEx, and their price is calculated automatically via the checkout function on our website. Many of our international customers, however, have us use their DHL or UPS number. In this case, the customer simply fills out and faxes Credit Card Authorization (including shipper number and carrier), and we will quickly process the order. Please remember to add the applicable tariff rate amount. If you don't know it, simply email us at the address below, and we'll get that to you.
