Shipping and Receiving

Shipping and receiving roles vary by campus:

University shipping and receiving that is not handled by Procurement & Payment Services is handled through UPS. On the Evanston campus, Mail Services manages UPS shipping; on the Chicago campus, UPS is available through the Tarry Building shipping and receiving area.

 


Package Delivery Update:

Because most buildings have been locked with limited onsite staffing during the pandemic, Procurement and Payment Services notified the major package delivery companies to redirect packages for the Evanston campus to Tech and 2020 Ridge in order to ensure receipt.  Those packages were then delivered to units by PPS Logistics and Mail Services based on department and school staff availability. 

Now that buildings are unlocked during normal business hours and most staff have returned to working on campus several days a week, we have notified FedEx, UPS, DHL, and Amazon to resume their pre-pandemic procedures and deliver packages directly to the address on the package beginning Monday, October 18, 2021.  Below are some helpful reminders to ensure smooth local receipt of your deliveries:

If you have additional concerns or unique situations, please contact Reginald Lee, Manager of Logistics, at reginald.lee@northwestern.edu or 847.467.7473.
