Save Money on Shipping Services with eShip Global
What is eShip Global?
eShip Global is a UH contracted
vendor that provides express
shipping services for university
departments to help manage their
shipping needs and reduce costs.
eShip Global is also a certified HUB
vendor, so departments that use this
service will receive HUB credit.
How do I place a shipping order?
Instead of placing a shipping order
directly with a shipping vendor,
such as FedEx and UPS, university
departments can go to the eShip
Global system, which is available
through the Finance System, and view
all shipping options (i.e.,
overnight, next day, 2-day delivery,
etc.) available from different
shipping companies. All shipping
charges listed in the eShip Global
system reflect the lowest prices
available to the university based on
state contract and group purchasing
rates. Departments are required to
enter the cost center to be charged
for their shipments and a
purpose/benefit statement at the
time of order.
How much does it cost?
eShip Global charges $0.75 for each
domestic shipment and $1.00 for
international shipments, which will
be added to the departmentís
shipping charge. However,
departments can expect to save at
least 20% off the overall shipping
price they are currently paying,
which will more than offset the
Note: UPS charges a $6.00 pickup fee
for packages picked up from the
department whether you use eShip
Global or not. The pickup fee is
included in the UPS quote on the
eShip Global page. Other shippers do
not charge a pickup fee for packages
picked up from the department when
using eShip Global. None of the
shippers charge a fee for dropping
off packages at a drop box.
How do I pay for the shipment?
On a weekly basis, eShip Global will
send an electronic file containing
all charges and cost center
information to Accounts Payable. The
file will be automatically converted
into vouchers and payments are
generated based on the cost centers
entered by the departments.
Therefore, departments do not need
to create vouchers to pay eShip
