As you resume shipping and receiving parcels to and from campus, remember to check for updated guidance from our Preferred shipping vendors. 

  • FedEx encourages staff to create a departmental account on the FedEx Website to better manage invoices and payments. There are also changes to requirements for shipments to China and Russia.
  • eShipGlobal is a centralized shipping tool that allows you to compare prices then ship through UPS, FedEx, and DHL with the added benefit of protection from liability of shipping hazardous materials and export-controlled shipments.
  • The Office of Insurance manages insurance for domestic and international shipments of property purchased with MIT funds. DLCs should contact the Insurance team for these shipments and should not purchase insurance directly from freight carriers.
