Colleges and Universities

Making the grade - smart solutions for campus shipping and business services.

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.
