Labs should apply for their own UPS CampusShip account to create and pay for mailing labels.

Labs are responsible for packaging/preparing their own shipments.

Important Points

  1. Put the name of the PI on the package.

  2. If you are shipping with dry ice, you need to have the dry ice label on the box with how much dry ice is in there.  Anything over 5 pounds needs to have paperwork filled out.

    Please see the website for this at this link https://www.ups.com/content/us/en/resources/ship/materials/coolants.html.

  3. We do not ship anything over five pounds.
