Package Shipping Update
Clemson University enjoys discounted shipping rates, negotiated by the State of South Carolina, with the primary package carriers UPS and FedEx. Unfortunately, the discounts provided by UPS are no longer in place as negotiations with the state are taking place and it is undetermined when they will return. To remain fiscally responsible, the University is recommending all departments ship via FedEx when possible. If on campus, the department can continue to place any outgoing packages at their mailstop for pick up by Mail Services. That team will process those items using FedEx. Likewise, faculty and staff may also drop off packages at the Dillard Mail Center for processing. For those departments not physically served by Mail Services, such as the Extension Offices, a FedEx sub account can be created to continue to take advantage of discounted shipping rates. Please see the steps below For questions, please contact Mail Services at 864-656-7720.
- Complete the sections in GREEN and ORANGE of the FedEx Account Creation Form and email form to email@example.com.
- Once FedEx sets up the account, you will receive an email with your new account number.
- Go to the FedEx website to create a new log in. The process asks for a credit card, but it can be skipped since one will not be needed.
- Once done, you can go to Your Profile and enter your Account number under Account Management on the left.
- Finally, when creating a shipment, be sure to select that account during the payment selection process.
