Shipping and Receiving

Outgoing/Incoming Freight 

Distribution Center's Shipping and receiving division offers outgoing shipping, special delivery, and distribution of received and/or ordered items to campus departments.

  • Our staff is certified in international and domestic shipping.
  • Special deliveries (such as artwork, non-standard sizes, etc.), packaging/crating for freight and hazardous materials shipments, and special services (such as un-crating centrally received freight) are billed for labor time, truck rental, and materials.
  • UCB Distribution Center shipping services (including hazardous materials) are offered at exclusively negotiated discounted rates — typically 70% less than a direct quote from freight companies.
  • Hazardous Materials Shipping - Our staff is certified in international and domestic shipping of hazardous materials and we are always willing to talk with you about any concerns you might have. Hazardous materials shipments includes a fee for handling and preparation charge.
  • Please contact us to request a free quote. Remember to include:

    • speedtype you want charged
    • description of the item you are shipping
    • location of the item to be shipped, specifically the building and room number
