Receiving and Delivery

To reduce the amount and size of delivery trucks on campus in compliance with UW-Madison’s Large Truck Policy (UW-6127), MDS operates a fleet of trucks that are less than 30 feet in length and sorts inbound packages for redelivery Monday through Friday. The MDS warehouse serves as the primary point of receiving, consolidation, and distribution for items purchased through ShopUW+ and typically ships them for same-day delivery. Next-business-day delivery to the surrounding Dane County area is available for most orders.

Note that MDS does not accept radioactive material, inhalation hazards, or any large non-palletized items.
