The quickest way is with a tracking number.
A tracking number is a unique group of numbers, or letters combined with numbers, assigned by the carrier to identify your package.
Go to the carrier's website and put in the tracking number for a detailed delivery status report. The status report will provide a detailed summary status of where the package is located with time, date, and location.
If it was a ground delivery service, you will receive the package within two business days. If you need to receive the package sooner, let us know by sending an email to Central Receiving Warehouse or calling 4019 to let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate you.
Frozen and refrigerated packages are processed first. Other 'priority' packages are delivered the same day.
When goods and services are received directly by the department, the PO creator is responsible for creating the "Receiving Report".
