All packages being delivered must enter the facility through the Loading Dock only. Fedex and UPS deliveries are usually expected to arrive between 9am and 10:30am Monday through Friday.  DHL usually arrives later. US Postal Service delivers and picks up mail (between 12pm-1pm)  from the Technology Center Monday through Saturday.  Purchasing must check all materials being delivered, and input information on the Daily Receiving Log.  This information should be entered for proper tracking.  After Purchasing office hours, Security/MOD takes over this task and handles in the same manner.  Purchasing will refer to the Daily Events Report which is distributed every Monday for events scheduled 3 weeks out, in order to research group names and their actual dates of arrival.  (This report is most helpful since it provides both the Account Name and POSTING names of upcoming groups). All packages for a guest or group must be logged and placed inside the Package Room upon delivery.  In the event the shipment is too large to place inside the Package Room, then shipment may remain just outside on the Loading Dock.  Package Room should remain locked at all times.

Packages with GROUP NAMES

All packages addressed with names of groups already inhouse should be delivered to Tech Center immediately.  Tech Center will then determine where package(s) should go.

Occasionally, for very large deliveries that need to be taken to Tech Center immediately, Purchasing may ask for assistance from the CS Floor staff to make sure this happens in a timely manner.

Tech Center will find out where package(s) should be taken to and coordinate delivery to that location.  In most cases, CS Floor staff will be called to deliver the package(s) to the appropriate meeting room.  Tech Center will document action taken on Daily Receiving Log.

A signature is required on the Daily Receiving Log confirming receipt of any package.

If the package(s) is addressed with a group name scheduled in the future, the package will be stored in the Package Room awaiting further instruction, and shelf location will be indicated on Daily Receiving Log.  Purchasing will also contact Conference Services to let them know that packages have arrived.

Packages with GUEST NAMES ONLY

For any packages addressed with guest name only, and no group name, the purchasing representative must call the Front Desk to see if guest is scheduled to stay in the hotel.If the guest is already checked into the hotel and…

…the package is letter-size, purchasing will automatically deliver the package to the Front Desk.  Front Desk will call the guest to let them know they are holding the package. Purchasing will document this action on Daily Receiving Log.

…the package is larger than letter-size, Purchasing will call the Front Desk.  Front Desk will then contact the guest in their room to inform them their package is here.  The package will be stored in the Package Room awaiting further instruction, and shelf location will be indicated on Daily Receiving Log.  

If the guest is scheduled to arrive, the Front Desk agent will enter a message in his/her reservation informing them upon check-in that package has arrived.  The package will be stored in the Package Room awaiting further instruction, and shelf location will be indicated on Daily Receiving Log.  

If the guest name is on the package, but not expected to stay inhouse, the package will be stored in the Package Room, and shelf location will be indicated on Daily Receiving Log.  

A signature is required on the Daily Receiving Log confirming receipt of any package.
