The Central Receiving area is responsible for pick-ups and deliveries to all areas of the campus. Not only do they deliver orders placed through Campus Stores, they are also the receiving site for other orders placed by departments across campus. Most freight companies are only willing to deliver to a street address and most campus buildings do not have adequate receiving facilities to accommodate large truck deliveries. CSMR's Central Receiving receives the deliveries for campus departments and re-delivers them to a specific room or lab.
