I've just pre-ordered the new iPad Pro and I received an e-mail saying the fulfillment date is May 21st.
Does this ship directly from Apple? Is the shipping method (speed) the same if I ordered from Apple directly?
Apple sometimes ships directly from China (I think) and I'm wondering if ordering from Best Buy instead of Apple will cause it to arrive/ship slower/later.

If you purchased it from Best Buy then it should ship to you from a Best Buy distribution center.
Personally for something as expensive as an iPad I would always opt for in store pick up.

Thanks for the reply. In-store pickup is not an option for the new iPad so it must be shipped.
Hopefully a BBY employee with more information can confirm the shipping procedure too.

Vendors all around the United States help fulfill orders. You may receive an item from a local store in your area, or you may receive it direct from the manufacturer. It could come from a warehouse, etc.
Best Buy determines the best way to fulfill an item based on local inventory so they can get you the item as quickly as possible.
