Central Receiving handles deliveries on campus from the following carriers: FedEx, UPS, DHL, TNT Express, Lasership, Lightening, and all freight divisions. Packages are delivered to Central Receiving and then distributed to departments on campus.
When expecting a freight delivery, please notify Central Receiving in advance so that proper delivery instructions can be arranged prior to the shipment arriving on campus.
It is important that all packages are addressed to the department that the delivery goes to, even if the item is ordered by a different department.
Deliveries are first attempted to the department. If no one is available, the package will be delivered to the Dean’s office.
Central Receiving does not have accounts with each carrier to ship packages for departments on campus. The individual/department must make the necessary payment arrangements with the carrier.
When individuals/departments have outgoing packages to be shipped by any of the carriers listed above, they must contact Central Receiving and request a pick up so the package can be shipped from our office. FedEx Express is the only carrier that will come to individual buildings on campus.
