Yes, interesting one.
Splitting the shipping would be possible, we just need to make the MOQ to secure the load. So that would get around that little hurdle, however I'm not sure how many people are wanting to get into this market, so finding other interested parties to by in with you could be your biggest problems.
The other issue with splitting shipping is there may well be an imbalance of what each receives, for example: one pallet may well have ten working units, and the other may have 1.
Nothing is tested, just shipped in and shipped out as you know.
Being that, you would just have to work on the worst case scenario that you were only going to get non-working units, and then get a bonus with any working units that turn up on your pallet.
Pro's and con's in both directions.
The best scenario would be to find someone locally to you, that would solve some issues for you both.
