Event Material Management

Logistics handles materials sent to conferences, exhibits, and events at Michigan State University—housing them in a secure, climate-controlled environment. Our team will receive, store, and deliver your materials to the event, as well as pick up and schedule return delivery via your predetermined carrier. All shipments being sent back to you require an affixed, pre-paid return shipping label.

Track your shipment(s) on the carrier's website to see if it has delivered to MSU. Once received on campus, packages can be tracked by entering your carrier's tracking number (UPS, FedEx, etc.) in our U-Track system. Please bring your tracking number to the event.

Shipping packages TO an event

Pay for the Event Material Management services via credit card prior to shipping materials to Central Shipping and Receiving. Include the event name, event date, date materials will arrive, and the number of packages being delivered to Central Shipping and Receiving and returning to you.

Plan for your packages to arrive at Central Shipping and Receiving one to five business days prior to the event. Timely delivery of packages received the day of the event cannot be guaranteed.
