UPS will replace FedEx for Express Package Delivery Service. This change is the result of a competitive solicitation by the Educational and Institutional Cooperative. The competitively awarded contract includes discounted rates for domestic and international shipments.

Pitney Bowes SendPro Enterprise is a new desktop shipping application. Filling out a paper shipping document is no longer required. Instead, users enter shipping information in the application, select the type of delivery service needed (i.e. next day by 3:00 p.m.), print a ship request form and attach it to the item. The mailroom staff scans the ship request form to create a shipping label and capture budget information. A user’s profile, budget information and frequently used shipping addresses are saved in the application, avoiding the need to enter this information again.
