The Jackson State University Central Receiving Department receives, inspects, processes and redistributes all incoming packages for University departments. Delivery to a central location increases property accountability and eliminates unnecessary truck traffic on campus, making the campus safer for students, faculty and staff.

Departments should get an approved JSU Purchase Order Number before ordering products. Additionally, please make sure to ensure your orders have the correct mailing information listed. Failure to follow JSU approved policies and procedures may delay the delivery of your items and receipt of payment in Banner.

Plan Ahead

Items received by Central Receiving should be delivered within 2-5 business days unless special handling is required.  If you are ordering large, oversized or extremely heavy equipment, make sure these items will fit on a regular delivery box truck and do not exceed weight limits for elevators. Additionally, there may be major delays in you receiving extremely large equipment that is delivered to Central Receiving as we do not have industrial motor vehicles to transport large equipment to and across campus. In these cases, you should have extremely large equipment shipped directly to your department. You will need to complete the Direct Delivery process.

Central Receiving does not move furniture to accommodate incoming equipment nor unpack or uncrate merchandise.

Central Receiving cannot provide storage or hold merchandise for departments. It is the responsibility of the requesting department to make storage arrangements for all shipments.
