Travel Shock?

With the growth of online wine buying and overnight shipping, has anyone experienced bottles with 'travel shock'.
Also are some varieties more susceptible to this phenomenon or is it a random - stuff happens type thing?
I rec'v fairly regular shipments of wine for use in our videos, and we sometimes (most times) don't have the luxury of waiting 2-3 weeks for the bottle to relax.
