Shipping Scientific Gear

All deliveries should be clearly marked as follows:

Principal Investigator or Point of Contact
SHIP NAME (IF APPLICABLE)
C/O UH MARINE CENTER
965 N Nimitz Hwy
HONOLULU, HI 96817

* Important! When shipping anything to the University of Hawaiʻi Marine Center (UHMC), for an expedition or otherwise, please fill out a Shipping Form so that we can properly handle & store your packages.
** When shipping containers also fill out a Container Authorization for Arrival Form.

Please Note:

At the end of the expedition, it is very important that at least one responsible party remain at the end port to ensure that all samples and other materials that need to be shipped out have been accepted by the shipping company. The UHMC cannot be responsible for any rejected shipments, because the UHMC cannot vouch for the contents and packaging of scientific shipments. Any shipment that is rejected will need to be taken care of by the responsible party.

When filling out shipping forms, the SENDER’S name should be the responsible science party’s name and NOT the University of Hawaiʻi Marine Center. Please make sure to include the account number that should receive shipping charges.

It is also required that the scientific party is responsible for proper disposal of any unused or waste chemicals at the end of the cruise.
