Facilities Operations Update

Holiday notice from Central Mail & Receiving – please be conscious when placing perishable orders for delivery next week

The WUSM Receiving docks will be closed for the Christmas Holiday on Friday, December 24th, and Monday, December 27th; however, most delivery services will be open and making deliveries to businesses on these days. FedEx, UPS, and the other delivery services know that WUSM docks will be closed and will not attempt to deliver to us on December 24th and 27th.

It is Very Important That Labs Not Place Orders For Perishables To Be Delivered On December 24th and 27th because those items will not be delivered to the WUSM docks until Tuesday, November 28th and the delivery companies have no way of storing refrigerated or frozen items over that period.

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Smith, Manager, Mail and Receiving Services at smith713@wustl.edu or 314-362-8014.
