Really it will very hard to ship 3000 - 4000 archive on network, in that situation what you can do is take a rman incremental scn level backup and apply there, it would hardly in some gb's. you can easily recover.
Applying thousands of archive log files might be quite time consuming and requires lot of downtime. The best approach would be to create a physical standby setup and once all the archive logs are shipped and applied perform a switch over.
