UPS season ticket logistics for college athletics

Higher Education Gets a Better Class of Shipping

Colleges and universities are always looking for ways to do better, be more efficient, make life easier and be more productive. That's where UPS can help, from college athletics and university shipping to The UPS Store® business center and mail services.

We can streamline campus services shipping processes before, during, and after delivery to eliminate waste and improve efficiency for colleges and universities. And those added efficiencies create opportunities to save time, cut costs, and be more sustainable.

Ship and Track Without Leaving Your Desk 
Sprawling campuses house many different kinds of college and university shippers, all on different schedules. But those shippers all have the same priorities: easy, flexible shipping and on-time delivery. Our online tools can help.

Web-based UPS CampusShip® allows for desktop shipping from any computer with Internet access. That means professors working past normal office hours can still access shipping services, and because there's an administrator with centralized control, there is visibility into permissions--and shipped packages.

Get added insight with Quantum View® Manage and give the mailroom a quick snapshot of every air, ground, or international shipment at any time.

Save on Freight Shipping Costs with Inbound Transportation Management

With college and university departments needing a variety of supplies, you've got freight shipments coming in from numerous vendors and locations. Instead of paying shipping costs to each merchant, we can be your single shipping provider and help you create an inbound transportation management plan that encourages vendor compliance and leverages your transportation spend. You can increase on-campus efficiencies while cutting shipping and handling expenses by up to two-thirds. Our range of less-than-truckload (LTL) and truckload freight services offers flexibility for your deliveries, whether you need them the next day or the next semester.

Enhance Your Brand and Improve Services on Campus

Add The UPS Store® to your on-campus offerings and give students, faculty, and staff easier access to campus services. When you host a business center, you're giving convenience: mailbox, printing, packing, and campus shipping services all within a designated area.

Show your pride--customize UPS Express® envelopes with your logo and make a strong statement about your school. Plus, our reusable envelopes offer a sustainable way to return tickets and other shipments.

Sustainable Solutions for Educational Institutions

On today's environmentally-conscious campuses, students and staff are looking for ways to reduce the impact of campus services. We're committed to sustainable solutions--from carbon neutral shipping and on-call pickups to electronic billing--and we can help you do more using less.
