Shipping and Receiving Guide

The Food Science Department Financial Clerk, Leona Varga, provides shipping and receiving support for faculty and staff. 

Documents can be sent by courier within Canada and internationally under University of Guelph agreements using Food Science Department accounts.  A courier shipping request slip is available from the Financial Clerk to provide details of the shipment, the financial coding, and authorization by appropriate financial authority.  Your package must be ready to be shipped and left with the Financial Clerk for pickup.

Parcels going out of the country, by Canada Post or by courier, require appropriate customs documents completed by the sender.  A Request for Shipping form is used to prepare the required customs paperwork.  This form contains contact information for dangerous goods shipments and regular shipments.  Exceptions that do not require customs documents are letters containing correspondence and printed papers that are not dutiable.

University of Guelph Financial Services has more information on mail service.
