eShip@Penn® is the University's enhanced express shipping process. While the primary goal of this system is to minimize the University’s risk associated with moving hazardous or other regulated materials and to ensure compliance with safety and export regulations as well as other mandates, the online system also offers benefits to all University business and regulated shippers. These include allowing users to:

  • Choose from a variety of carriers (UPS, FedEx and DHL) to determine which one best meets their specific needs;
  • Shop and compare costs to ensure that Schools and Centers receive the best price from available carriers;
  • Track shipments from an integrated at-a-glance dashboard, regardless of the carrier used to ship the package; and
  • Preprint shipping labels.

For those individuals who do need to ship hazardous materials, the system verifies that shippers have the proper training and helps ensure that shipments are prepared in accordance with the most current dangerous goods regulations from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the United States Department of Transportation (DOT). The system also provides guidance to those who need to ship internationally.
