Shipping Diagnostic Samples to the KSVDL

by Rachel Corn BS, VT

Depending on your location, you have several choices when choosing a diagnostic sample shipping carrier including their various service levels. The company’s pricing, reliability, convenience and   urgency of the results all play a role in your decision. Often one size does not fit all sample situations.UPS MAP

Sample Shipping Options to KSVDL by Rachel Corn BS, VT

Depending on your location, you have several choices when choosing a diagnostic sample courier, including various service levels. Courier pricing, reliability, convenience and the urgency of results all play a role in your decision. Often, one size does not fit all situations.

If you live inside the yellow areas on the U.S. Ground Map, KSVDL may have an attractive alternative to consider through UPS since there are three different UPS shipping options available to Manhattan, KS. The options include UPS Next Day Air $13; UPS Second Day Air $9; and UPS Ground $6, and KSVDL can assist you by providing UPS Flat Rate “Ground” shipping labels.

- Most locations within the yellow map can use “Ground Labels” ($6) and expect “Overnight Delivery” of the package to KSVDL.

- All labels are acceptable for up to 15-lb packages, never expire, and include “FREE” UPS Pickup.

- Labels are “pre-paid” and sent from KSVDL via UPS ground to your location. You will be invoiced for all labels ordered at the time they are created for you.

- The regular UPS Ground labels are not good for Saturday delivery.

For more information or to order UPS shipping labels, please contact Client Care at 866-512-5650 or clientcare@vet.k-state.edu.
