Cheapest ways for sending packages within Switzerland

I am wondering if there are cheaper alternatives to Post for sending small packages (1-2kg) within Switzerland/Zurich. Delivery speed is not important (within reasonable boundaries like < month).

Cheaper than the Post? I don't think so, certainly not for 1-2kg parcels which are probably 9-10francs by post. Maybe if someone is driving from your city to another one they might agree to do it for 5.- (in which case you have saved a grand total of 4.-)

Parcels up to 2Kg are only 9.00 for A Post, B is 7.00. I can't imagine anyone doing it much cheaper than that.
