Distribution Services

Central Receiving

Large Item Deliveries

Inbound freight items may require special handling if delivery personnel cannot safely transport freight because of its size, weight, lack of suitable equipment (i.e., crane/hoist or shipments that require a forklift); the need for additional delivery personnel; or the shipment is to be delivered to a location other than the department's authorized delivery point.

In these cases the ordering department will be notified by a job scheduler from Special Services. Special Services will make arrangements for delivery and provide a delivery window. The cost of such special arrangements will be the responsibility of the ordering department.
