Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The PartnerShip® FedEx Ship CenterSM at the 2016 ABC Children’s Institute in Orlando, Florida, will make it easy for booksellers to send books and other items back to their stores as well as take advantage of the substantial shipping savings already available to members through the ABA Shipping Program.

Here, PartnerShip provides a few time- and money-saving tips for booksellers to review before heading to Orlando:

  • If you haven’t already, visit to enroll in the ABA Shipping Program. Program participants save up to 30 percent on select FedEx Ground® services, including shipments from the Children’s Institute and every shipment thereafter. Enroll today to ensure your discounts are in place in time, as it can take up to 10 days to get these discounts from FedEx.
  • Bring your nine-digit FedEx account number with you. Once you enroll in the ABA Shipping Program, you will receive a FedEx account number, if you don’t already have one. Having the account number handy will expedite the shipping process and ensure that you receive all allowable discounts.
  • Preprint your shipping labels. Avoid lines by preprinting your shipping labels at before coming to the Children’s Institute. PartnerShip will place those labels on your boxes and you’ll be done.
  • The FedEx Ship Center will be open on Wednesday, June 22, and Thursday, June 23. PartnerShip will provide boxes and tape so you can stop by and start staging your boxes early.

PartnerShip representatives will be onsite at the 2016 ABC Children’s Institute to offer assistance and answer any questions.
