The Materials Distribution Warehouse is responsible for shipping, receiving and distributing all items entering or leaving TRU. That is:
- All goods coming into TRU are received through the Warehouse
- All goods and materials shipped from TRU are sent through the Warehouse
The exception to the above procedure is for Culinary Arts, Meat Cutting supplies and PCard Purchases. The shipping and receiving functions of the Warehouse ensure that proper records are maintained.
Waybill forms and courier envelopes used to send items off campus are available from the Warehouse. Courier forms are ordered by filling out an IDI. Be sure to include an appropriate account number on the IDI and on the waybill when you fill out such bills. If we do not know what account is to be debited, we cannot ship the items.
The Warehouse ships items by using the most appropriate service for your package based on the destination, weight and delivery time factors. For example, if the parcel needs to reach its destination by the next day, we will ship by over-night courier.
