Fed-Ex/United Parcel Services(UPS) Deliveries
Items received via outside couriers Fed-Ex, UPS and other couriers are considered controllable items requiring a signature, indicating acceptance by the university. Normally these items are delivered by the couriers to Distribution Services between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. These items not requiring special processing, such as Purchase Orders, will be delivered to the department the same day, if the item is received in Distribution Services prior to 11:00 a.m. Items processed with a purchase order, needing property tagging or oversized freight requiring a forklift, may require additional processing time prior to deliver.
Tip: The receiver's department name must appear on the item to insure proper delivery. If a department name does not appear on the item, it will be returned to the vendor for additional information.
