PersonalShip – A New Way to Ship Your Packages

Penn Mail Services is excited to announce a new opportunity exclusively for Penn faculty, staff, and students. Making its debut just in time for the holiday season, PersonalShip is a service that provides members of the Penn community the opportunity to benefit from the University’s discounted rates to send packages via express mail. The eShip@Penn® platform, express package shipping solution, has been specially adapted to offer this program to the community.

PersonalShip is easy to use and designed to be intuitive. Whether you are sending packages across town or around the world, the system allows users to:

* Choose from UPS and DHL (FedEx is not part of this program) to determine which carrier best meets their specific needs;

* Leverage the University’s negotiated pricing;

* Track shipments from an integrated at-a-glance dashboard;

* Pay using a personal credit card; and

* Preprint or email shipping labels.

PersonalShip conveniently offers multiple carrier service levels to suit your schedule and budget.

To begin using PersonalShip:

* Access the system at http://www.upenn.edu/personalship.

* Enter your valid PennKey and password when prompted to do so.

* Please read the information on the front page carefully, as it provides important instructions.

* The first time you enter the portal, you will be asked to set up your shipper’s profile.

* Once you are in the system, you can click on the red help links or use the FAQ link on the website for additional assistance.

* Shipping supplies, along with a packing area, are available to you free of charge at the PennCard office (2nd floor, Penn Bookstore, 3601 Walnut Street).

* Packages can be dropped off at any UPS or DHL locations, several of which can be found on campus.

We hope that you will find this service to be of value and will take advantage of it. If you have questions, you may contact the eShip Project Team at pership@exchange.upenn.edu.
