Shipping and Deliveries

Shipping via Fedex

If shipping FedEx Express domestic, create a shipping label using the online FedEx tool in Oracle.

If you don't have access to the FedEx Oracle module, please request it by filling out the FedEx Access Request Form.

For FedEx International and Ground shipments, fill out the Shipping Form and bring the package to the Loading Dock in the LISE Building or 52 Oxford Street. There are carts available in the loading dock area as well as some packing materials.

Before shipping items internationally, you need to make sure that there are no Export Control restrictions that apply to either the item that is shipped, the recipient, the recipient’s institution or the country it is shipped to. For assistance in this process contact the FAS/SEAS Export Control Administrator https://research.fas.harvard.edu/export-controls .

You can contact the Shipping Dock if you need help with larger packages – the business hours are 7am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
