Express Services


Complete address with telephone numbers are very important. Express Services Request Form must be completed and accompany the piece to be sent express.

We utilize Federal Express as our courier of choice. Post Office box numbers are unacceptable addresses for Federal Express delivery services. We will use the U.S. Postal Service for express mail when only a Post Office box is available.

Envelopes and Packaging

Federal Express supplies us with 9" x 12" envelopes sometimes called Overnight Letters. They also supply large 12" x 18" envelopes called Overnight Paks, mailing tubes (for odd size long items) and various size boxes, such as five pound boxes.

Federal Express offers:

  1. Next Day:
    1. By 10:30am (Priority Overnight)
    2. By 5:00pm (Standard Overnight)
  2. Second Business Day

Delivery, Pickup, and Cutoff Times

Call Mail Services for information about critical mailings after your normally scheduled pickup time. NOTE: if you request a Saturday delivery an additional charge of $16 is often incurred. Should you require Saturday service, determine if anyone is going to be at the delivery destination. Also, to conserve costs, do not use overnight or express services on Friday unless you are sure the addressee will be there to accept the parcel.
