Shipping to TFS
Shipping Supplies to TFS
Option 1: You may bring your research supplies with you on the day of your travel to TFS. If traveling by TFS science truck, we will do our best to ensure that your supplies travel with you. If you are bringing more than two airline sized luggage items please let Toolik Logistics know at least two days in advance.
Option 2a: You may ship research supplies via your preferred carrier to our logistics home. Purchased items may be shipped directly from the vendor. Items should be addressed as follows:
Your name/Your PI’s name
IAB Toolik 757000
900 Yukon Dr BLDG T-4
Fairbanks, AK 99775
Please protect your supplies by packing them carefully. Please allow ample time for items to make the long journey to Alaska, or expedite them appropriately. USPS Priority Mail normally takes 7-10 days.
Option 2b: You may drop off research supplies at our TFS logistics home on the UAF campus prior to your travel to the station. The office is located behind the Reichardt Building (900 Yukon Dr), trailer #4.
We will do our best to transport your supplies to TFS prior to your arrival at the station. The further in advance we receive your items, the more likely it is that they will be waiting for you at the station when you arrive. Due to space limitations during peak season, it can take up to seven days for items to reach Toolik once we receive them in Fairbanks. Please plan accordingly.
Please inform the Toolik Logistics staff (UAF-IAB-TFSfirstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the arrival of oversized items (>150 lbs, or larger than a pallet), and items that require special handing (i.e. refrigerated/frozen).
