FedEx Express (Formerly known as Federal Express)

FedEx Express is a private courier that specializes in overnight and 2 to 3 day deliveries. It is a fast, reliable service that offers several advantages.

Advantages:

  • Fast delivery: Overnight available to most US addresses, if the article is brought to the mailroom before nine o'clock a.m.
  • Service Options: a wide variety including:
    • Overnight
    • Second Day
    • or Three Day Delivery
  • Standard $100 insurance on all items, with option to purchase additional insurance
  • It is possible to waive the signature requirement
  • There is no need to request courier every time you ship an item, since we are on a regular pick-up schedule
  • Tracking can be found on the internet @ www.fedex.com or by calling 1-800 Go FedEx
  • Optional Saturday delivery to select locations

Disadvantage:

  • Weekend delivery option is charged an extra fee
  • More Expensive than Priority or First Class Mail
  • No local offices
  • Note: FedEx Express can not deliver to P.O. Boxes, for P.O. Box addresses the item must be shipped by the US Postal Service
  • FedEx will not insure art work for over 500 dollars, if necessary to insure for more then you must use a separate insurance company. In the past we have used Transglobal Insurance at 1-800-245-4852

 

Rates and Fees

will vary depending on destination and weight. It is usually less expensive, however, than Express Mail for most destinations.

ASU is on a State of Colorado rate schedule and therefore it is usually about half the cost of Express Mail with letter rates starting around $5.25. All items must be to the Mailroom by 9:00 AM to guarantee shipment on that day.

Contact mailroom for specific prices.
