Our services include:

  • Receiving purchase orders shipped to our main Central Receiving dock at 14th and Strand, and creating a receipt in the PeopleSoft system based on packing slip information

  • Inspecting items if the shipping container is visibly damaged

  • Informing Delivery that items are ready to be delivered to the requesting department

  • Assisting with processing loss, shortage and damage claims and returns to the freight carriers and vendors

  • Assisting with the prompt payment of vendors

  • Routing all shipments (purchase order and non-purchase order shipments) received at our main dock
