Evanston Campus Vendor Delivery Instructions for Vendors

The Cook/Hogan Dock located at 2205 Tech Drive and servicing Cook Hall at 2220 Campus Drive will be affected by the Hogan roof replacement project scheduled from June 19, 2017, through September 8, 2017. The roofing contractor will have fencing erected around the area and equipment that will occupy two dock doors. This will create some difficulty for trucks longer than 30 feet accessing the remaining dock door. The dock will maintain normal hours of operation during construction unless arrangements are made in advance of the delivery appointment. The dock is open Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Truck Size:
The docks, in general, are not designed to accommodate trucks longer than 40 feet. During construction, any trucks longer than 30 feet will need to contact shipping and receiving at 847-467-7473 or email reginald.lee@northwestern.edu to make sure that the appropriate arrangements are in place to receive the freight. 

Oversize Freight:
For oversized items and equipment please contact shipping and receiving to schedule your delivery a minimum of two days in advance – this is to assure that the appropriate arrangements and accommodations are made to successfully handle your freight delivery. It is likely that we will be unable to receive large freight items if they arrive unscheduled. 

Large Freight Items:
Please contact the shipping and receiving dock at 847-467-7473 or email reginald.lee@northwestern.edu if you have questions or need assistance. Large freight items include:

Delivery Driver Truck Routes:
Vendors making deliveries on the Evanston campus must utilize approved City of Evanston truck routes. Please refer to the City of Evanston Truck Routes Map.

Anti-Idling Ordinance for Vendor Deliveries:
The City of Evanston has a formal anti-idling ordinance to which all vendors should adhere. The ordinance prohibits standing or parked vehicles that are over 8,000 lbs. in gross weight from idling their engines for more than five minutes in any 60-minute period. Vendors making deliveries on campus must abide by this ordinance. For more information on the ordinance, visit the City of Evanston's Anti-Idling Ordinance.
