Shipping & Delivery

Order fulfillment and processing takes place from both our Albuquerque, New Mexico warehouse as well as our Somerset, New Jersey warehouse. It is our goal to ship within 24 hours of order placement, although most orders will ship the same day. We typically ship using UPS, although FedEx and USPS may be available upon request.

For retail orders, we offer free UPS Surepost Shipping. However, this service is delivered through the US Post Office, and transit times are not guaranteed. Additional shipping options are available, up to and including UPS Next Day Air, but charges will apply.

Discounted shipping rates available to Passages International are passed directly to our customers.

Once orders are fulfilled, the tracking numbers will be sent to the email provided and will be available in your online account.

UPS shares our passion for environmental responsibility and, just like Passages, is taking steps to minimize its carbon footprint. We ship all UPS packages through their Carbon Neutral Shipping program. With this program, UPS is saving hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel and eliminating thousands of tons of carbon emissions per month, while putting funds towards further reducing carbon emissions.

Orders placed by 3pm MST will ship the same day. Online orders must be received by 2pm for same day shipping (Some exceptions may apply.)
