Welcome to Logistics

Logistics is responsible for the receipt and delivery of inbound and outbound university shipments. We provide expertise on export compliance and hazardous materials shipping, and offer an Event Material Management service to transport conference and exhibit items to and from events.

Shipping and Receiving

Outbound Shipments

Logistics provides a central location to ship goods and materials for legitimate university business including the pick up of departmental outbound USPS, UPS, FedEx, palletized freight, and campus mail shipments. 

We do not ship or receive deliveries for student residence rooms, university lodging rooms, or contractor construction sites. Please contact the Division of Student Life and Engagement regarding these services.

Dry ice shipments must arrive at our dock by noon for same-day shipping.

Inbound Shipments

We also manage the university's inbound materials. Carriers have been instructed to stop at Central Shipping and Receiving regardless of the shipment's final campus destination.

Prior to delivery, freight is inspected, verified, and processed for same day or next business day delivery. Perishable shipments are processed and distributed to recipients the day of receipt.

Shipments labeled with the recipient and building name will help ensure accurate parcel delivery. 

Service Request

To initiate prompt pick-up of an outgoing shipment, submit an online Service Request form, attach a copy of the completed form to the parcel, and place the shipment in the mail room.

  • A Service Request form is not required for campus mail.
  • Please select the US Postal Service tile if the delivery is to be made to a P.O. box.
  • Please select the Parcel and Freight Shipping Services tile for UPS, FedEx, DHL, and freight.
