They've got a lot of stuff sitting in a warehouse in Chicago.
I got a rack delivered from them in a couple days last summer when all
other vendors I could find (including Dell) were giving a few weeks lead
time due to APC's backlog. Since they are in Chicago, even things that
come via truck freight get here fast.
They seem to have a lot more stock of enterprise type hardware than most
(maybe any?) other vendor.
