The University of St. Thomas has selected Federal Express to be its exclusive contracted shipping vendor. Federal Express shipping services will include Ground, Standard Next Day, Priority Next Day and International Shipping services.

According to the new agreement, effective immediately the university will no longer use other vendors for outbound shipments, including United Parcel Service, DHL, etc., unless you have a prepaid call tag (A.R.S. or R.S.). Please note that all call tag items MUST be brought to Campus Mail Services or the Minneapolis Service Center for vendor pickup.

You may bring your items for shipment to Campus Mail Services on the lower level of Murray-Herrick Campus Center (for shipments originating in St. Paul) or to the Minneapolis Service Center on the lower level of Terrence Murphy Hall (for shipments originating in Minneapolis) between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday (for FedEx Ground) or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (for all other FedEx services).

The new program includes centralized shipping and receiving, computerized billing, chargeback and invoice payment, which allows the university to have greater control as well as achieve significant cost savings.

For additional St. Paul campus shipping information call (651) 962-6355. For Minneapolis campus shipping information call (651) 962-4041.

All USPS services remain available.
