New Express Mail Partnership
May 27, 2008, Volume 54, No. 34

Penn Mail Services and Purchasing Services are pleased to announce a new partnership with UPS which will offer Penn faculty and staff more comprehensive express mail services.

A new online express mail system will offer many benefits to faculty and staff including:

• State-of-the-art online shipping including desktop printed air bills, eliminating the need for paper shipping forms;

• Penn negotiated discount pricing so that Penn customers receive the best possible price with significant cost savings;

• Enhanced external package tracking and reporting; and

• Internal budgetary controls including online allocation of shipping charges.

The new express mail online system, a collaborative development effort between Purchasing, Mail Services and Information Systems & Computing, will launch July 1 with full implementation expected by the end of August. Throughout the summer, Penn Mail and UPS will provide training to users for its new online shipping system and drop-boxes will be placed across campus.  

Please direct questions regarding this new express mail partnership with UPS to: express-ship@upenn.edu.
