FedEx Shipping


FedEx shipments may be sent from Mail Services Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Mail Services maintains a supply of FedEx flat rate envelopes, packs, tubes and other express packaging products. FedEx shipping charges are paid through the use of Berry's corporate account and are charged against your departmental budget. Faculty, staff and students may ship personal items via FedEx. Personal shipments may be paid for by cash or check payable to Berry College. (FedEx shipping charges cannot be charged neither to a faculty/staff account nor to a student "one" card account.)
