Who This Is For

United States federal agencies and entities.

Global Reliability

Domestic Delivery

UPS is an awardee of the government transportation contract called NGDS (Next Generation Delivery Service) and is a preferred vendor for express and ground domestic delivery. This means savings and benefits for you, including one low, flat UPS Next Day Air rate for all zones in the U.S. 48, with no weight limit. Plus you won't be charged for daily pickups or fuel surcharges for express and ground packages.

Since low rates only translate to cost savings if the service is strong and reliable, we offer a money-back guarantee for all air and ground deliveries. Plus, you can rely on our expert insight to help you make more informed decisions and better manage your shipping. 

International Shipping

Get fast, reliable, and guaranteed on-time delivery to more than 220 countries and territories. You can depend on our worldwide, multi-modal capabilities to get all your shipments—from envelopes to cargo—delivered safely and on-time. Use our delivery commitment schedule to help you determine how long it will take your package to reach its destination—guaranteed.

And as a preferred international carrier to the U.S. Government under the NGDS contract, we can handle your international shipments from 1-300 lbs. But our shipping capabilities don't stop at 300 lbs—we're one of the world's largest freight forwarders and one of its biggest customs brokers, and we tackle heavy, complex shipments every day.
