FlashPac | Kent State University


What is FlashPac?

  • A new online shipping service for ground packages weighing 70 pounds or less (not available for overnight mail).
  • Available to Kent Campus university departments.
  • Allows departments to compare shipping prices online and select the best rate and delivery method (e.g. USPS, FedEx, UPS).
  • Consolidates pick-up for ground packages; Mail Services will pick-up packages at your department.
