UPS Shipping Program

THE UMN VDL has partnered with UPS to provide clients with a more user friendly method for shipping your diagnostic samples to the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. This new program provides a more consistent, reliable, and affordable shipping option to ensure your samples reach our lab in good condition.  This new program also improves package traceability by providing real time tracking and notification of receipt. This partnership allows us to offer you discounted flat rate shipping, with no restrictions on package weight or size. Charges will be applied to your monthly statements.
