About Distribution

The University's goal is to reduce vehicular traffic on campus. This not only protects the faculty and student population, but also allows for most goods to be delivered to one central location.

Once the product has been received at MMDC, it is our responsibility to make sure the product gets delivered to the appropriate building on campus, in a timely manner and undamaged.

Our drivers are responsible for delivering to the docks or receiving areas of the buildings. We make every effort to provide a 24-hour turn around on all shipments. This means that once the product hits our docks, you should have your product within 24 hours. We currently track most materials from the time of receipt to the time in which it is delivered to your building's receiving location. You can use our internal tracking system which can be found under the Receiving tab.

Once the product is signed for, received, scanned, and delivered, Materials Distribution Services is no longer responsible for the product and we will not replace that product. If it appears the product may have been damaged during shipping, contact Materials Distribution Services at 765-494-7103. Any damage that may be deemed as manufacturer or vendor defect should be handled by the department and that manufacturer or vendor.
