Making sure your package arrives safely

News Updates

Shipping: export and import issues
International shipping can be mysterious. It is also subject to numerous export and import controls and regulations. Fines, confiscation, or incarceration can all result from failing to comply. Learn more!

Next day deliveries

As of January 2005, you can add UPS to the vendors who will now deliver overnight to your desktop. Other carriers include: DHL and FedEx.

Two day deliveries

If you're receiving a two-day incoming shipment, it is best to use FedEx or DHL to avoid additional delivery time. UPS two day shipments are still dropped off at shipping and receiving. They are then sorted and delivered by Mail Services personnel.
