Receiving and Shipping
The Physics Receiving and Shipping services are located in Room 151 Le Conte Hall. All goods purchased by the Physics Department Shoppers via BearBuy are delivered to Physics Receiving for processing. The staff in the Receiving department inspects the shipments, reconciles the packing slips against the PO and notifies the recipients via BearBuy that their shipment is ready for pickup.
Domestic, international and freight shipments that we process must be done through Fedex Express. To have your item sent out by us please fill out this form. Before submitting your completed form please validate your SpeedType here. If you do not wish to have your outgoing shipment processed through Fedex you must source your own shipping and process the order through Bearbuy. We don't offer any other services other than Fedex Express for outgoing shipments.
Shipping requests by Fedex Express must be submitted by 1:30pm in order to be sent out the same day. All drop offs with preprinted labels are picked up the following day.
We have Fedex and UPS boxes and envelopes for your use. We also have a limited supply of empty boxes and packing materials. Please check with the Service Desk to see what is available. Users/labs are responsible for packing their own boxes prior to being shipped. We can't take any liability in the event of damage. In the event of damage the requestor (labs/user) must make a claim with Fedex.
Please note that we do not have the capability of shipping hazardous materials, goods or gases. If you wish to ship them please contact EHS' shipping specialist here.
