Freight shipments are handled by Physical Plant: (616) 526-6444.

Sending Overnight Mail & Packages

Please note that outgoing overnight letters and packages must be received by Mail Services no later than 3:00 pm in order to be processed that same day. Shipments that reach Mail Services after 3:00 will be processed the following business day. We advise you to NOT send overnight shipments to Mail Services using ICM, as these may not reach Mail Services in time to be processed and shipped the same day.

Sending Packages Internationally

Packages sent to an international destination will require a customs postage form, or more specifically, a customs declaration form. Use the USPS Customs form page to fill out a USPS customs declaration form
