Central Receiving & Shipping


Central Receiving and Shipping's primary responsibility is the receiving and shipping of goods and materials for the University, students, faculty and staff via ground transportation.


Shipping is primarily a UPS Ground shipper. When you need to send a package out the package must be Central Receiving by 3:00 PM. Departmental shipments must be accompanied by a shipping form.

For larger shipments, a trucking company may better suit your needs. The sender is responsible for making arrangements with the trucking company for pick up of the items and completing the bill of lading for the shipment. The method of payment for shipments is collect or prepaid.
