department to arrange delivery.
Notes regarding freight deliveries

including item, pallet and lift on pallet jack are over 72” high, PDC will be contacted

PO written such that the vendor communicates the specific delivery location and instructions
to the freight company.
- Due to limited space, Distribution Services is not able to hold freight shipments
for longer than five days, unless the shipment will require special handling, Facilities
