While checking the UPS website for packing & shipping guidelines, I came across the following quote:
IN OTHER WORDS "FRAGILE" DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO UPS. AND THEY ADMIT IT!!!
Note: UPS does not provide special handling for packages with "Fragile", package orientation (e.g., "UP" arrows or "This End Up" markings), or any other similar such markings.

I am not surprised. Call me pessimistic but I have always considered a 'fragile' declaration to be an invite to the handlers to see what it takes to make the package rattle.
