Barnard College uses FedEx as its primary vendor for Express and Ground shipping. The College receives discounted rates which are passed along to departments. Mail Services supplies FedEx envelopes and boxes for express services. There is no charge for these materials, but FedEx does not allow express packaging to be used for ground shipments.
Mail Services will create a FedEx user account to authorized faculty and staff so they can log into the FedEx web site to generate the appropriate shipping labels. Using FedEx Ship Manager is like ordering other products or services on-line. Faculty and support staff should contact their department assistant or administrator for authorization to the FedEx Ship Manager web site to generate the appropriate shipping forms. Administrators may email requests, including the full name, email address, and department for the person needing FedEx access, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Effective July 1, 2012, Mail Services will no longer accept payments to prepare outgoing FedEx labels for personal (non-work) items. Faculty and staff who want to ship personal items by FedEx can use the FedEx web site for creating one-time shipments paid by credit card or they can go to the FedEx location on 116th Street, just west of Broadway. Mail Services will continue to accept drop-off packages for staff who have created their own labels on their own computers and printers. FedEx picks up from Mail Services every work day around 2:30 p.m.
