Lower Shipping costs?

Currently I'm running a website for my boss' small business. Sales at the shop are outstanding but online we're an underdog. And probably get around 2-3 sales a month because shipping costs are high. We can compete on product pricing for most things but SHIPPING is killing our sales.
I've talked to UPS and fedex and neither can offer a significant discount to even come close to making the difference.
I've been doing some research and found that some business partner with other business to combine their shipping to attempt and get lower rates. I have no idea how to start that as most of our business neighbors do not even ship or want to start online sales.
Are there any other recommendations? Or am I going to have to bite my lip until it gets better.
