Express shipments through such carriers as DHL Express and Federal Express may be
made by faculty and staff directly to their desktop department location with the exception
of any equipment item of $1,000 or greater. All equipment items of $1,000 or greater should be processed through Central Receiving
location to facilitate property tagging and recording. Express shipments require a
physical address (street, building, room number) be given by shipper to an express
carrier (no SLU, P.O. Box or Drawer numbers.) For orders requiring a Purchase Requisition,
budget units are responsible for generating a receipt in PS Financials to process
United Parcel Service (UPS) delivers all common and express package shipments to SLU Central Receiving. Central Receiving will endeavor to deliver UPS Next Day package shipments the same day as delivered, but if it cannot, Central Receiving will endeavor to contact individual or department the same day package arrives. Individuals or departments may elect to pickup package from Central Receiving before 5:00 p.m. or request package be sent the following day on Central Receiving delivery van.
If the express carrier will not make delivery directly to the oncampus location, Central Receiving will not refuse the delivery and will endeavor to call or email the department or individual that a package is in Central Receiving. Department or individual will be given the option to pickup the package during Central Receiving hours (7:30 am to 5:00 pm) or request the package be placed on the Central Receiving delivery van for delivery with other regular deliveries.
Central Receiving is not an express delivery carrier, yet strives to get express packages out the same day it is received.
