The Arizona BioIndustry Association offers an array of money-saving benefits to its members–enough that many member companies and organizations save more than their membership dues.

The newest benefit is a significant discount on FedEx shipping services, a result of the partnership between AZBio and the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), the international trade association for the biotech industry.

Erin Donahue, AZBio’s director of operations, provided these details of the program in an email to members:

As a member of AZBio, the program offers your company:

• Up to 33% off select FedEx Express®U.S shipping

• Up to 35% off select FedEx Express international shipping

• Up to 23% off select FedEx Express®Freight shipments of more than 150 pounds

• Up to 15% off select FedEx Ground®shipping

(The discounts above on FedEx Express and FedEx Express international shipments include an additional 5% discount when you create shipping labels for eligible shipments on fedex.com or with another approved FedEx®electronic shipping solution.) As a member of AZBio, your company is eligible to take advantage of this FedEx program with no enrollment fees or shipping quotas, as the program is offered as a benefit of AZBiomembership.
