All packages are counted, scanned and tagged for delivery to respective departments throughout the campus. Our goal is to deliver packages on the day of receipt or the next business day, depending on the volume. Parcels weighing over seventy pounds require the end-user to submit a Building & Grounds laborers work order request in order for the delivery to be processed.
**Official mail is defined as being essential to the activities of the institution**
We coordinate with the Purchasing Department and company vendors on determining parcels with incomplete recipient information. We will make every effort to ascertain the intended department destination.
To request copy paper, blue books or chalk, fill out a supply requisition and submit the form to the Receiving Department. Please utilize the Central Receiving door chute slot, located on the Loading Dock side of the office, which is accessible at any time of the day. Requests are fulfilled within one or two business days.
Biological and chemical products typically are delivered on the same day because of refrigeration requirements.
Computers and other electronic equipment also receive top priority because of the monetary value. All electronic equipment received requires us to contact Matthew Black, Property Coordinator, Business Office, firstname.lastname@example.org,edu, extension 2111. Mr. Black is responsible for inventory and tagging these items, according to College requirements.
If you need assistance tracking a package that arrived via any of the major courier services, please provide us with a tracking number and we will provide a name, date and time of delivery.
Departments that require use of a flatbed in order to transport materials or other items are welcome to borrow one from Central Receiving. Please stop by our office during normal hours of operation with a York College ID card. The loan period is one business day, and up to two business days, depending on availability.
