Shipping and Receiving
For your convenience, shipping arrangements can be made through shipping and receiving with Alyson Galipeau. She will help you coordinate packaging your item and the appropriate paperwork with the shipping company you choose. You will need to provide her with a FedEx account number. FedEx will not take a package from the dock without one. Harvard uses solely FedEx for its outgoing shipments. If users wish to send something via UPS, the sender needs to call UPS to request a pickup. You must give final packaging approval before the box is sealed for shipment. Please be advised to declare the appropriate value of the item you are shipping in the insurance section of the shipping paperwork. If you do not declare the actual value of the item, neither building management nor GCA will be responsible for the cost of replacement or the difference between the cost of replacement and the value declared.
