Smolke:How to send a package
FedEx shipments instructions
We have not received FedEx account numbers for Stanford University shipments. Stanford University policy specifies that we charge FedEx shipping directly to a PTA. Jean Cookinham will provide a pdf of shipping label for SMOLKE LAB packages that you send, as well as labels you will provide to others for Stanford University shipments sent to you.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org identifying:
As the sender, you will submit the package to FedEx. The closest on-campus FedEx drop box is located at the corner of Via Pueblo and Via Palou Malls, near the David Packard Building. If you will miss the 3:30pm deadline, the package must go the next business day and a new package label must be produced. If you need to make alternative arrangements, contact Jean.
IMPORTANT: You must complete the "DOT: Shipping Biological Goods or Dry Ice (EHS-2700-WEB)" training before you ship any package containing dry ice. The government exacts heavy fines dry-ice packages originating from anyone who has not completed the training.
FedEx might not provide the proper invoicing for your reimbursement, should you pay for the shipment yourself. Without the invoice, Stanford University might not reimburse you for FedEx charges.
