Shipping & Receiving will be closed Fridays during Summer Hours
Special attention should be taken when writing Purchase Requisitions, especially relating to priority, overnight and expedited deliveries. If a delivery is attempted on a Friday during Summer Hours (June 6th through August 12th), items may be returned to the vendor.
This factor becomes increasingly important in relation to temperature-sensitive items that require refrigeration or freezing. Many vendors do not utilize companies with local shipping stations, and thus, carriers attempting delivery on Fridays may incur an extended layover. In some such cases, the customer will incur charges relating to the unexpected layover or in relation to items being returned to the vendor.
To avoid additional charges, please include office closure dates for Shipping & Receiving on all Purchase Orders in which delivery may occur on a Friday.
Please Contact Shipping & Receiving at ext. 5115, if you have any questions or concerns.
