MMAD does not ship anything out via US Postal Service. For information on USPS shipping, contact Xerox customer service at 765-494-2006 or PurduePrintDigital@xerox.com.

Pick Ups and Deliveries

All shipments to be processed by the Materials Management and Distribution department should be placed at the designated mail delivery/pick up location in the campus building. Campus mail personnel will pick up and transfer shipments to the shipping room at the scheduled times. "After hours" shipments may be taken to the Materials Management and Distribution Center (MMDC), located at 700 Ahlers Drive, West Lafayette, no later than 5 p.m. Park by the dumpsters, and enter through the back door by the dock.

Capital Assets/Inventoried Property

Are you shipping a capital asset (inventoried Purdue property)? If yes, then a Property off Campus form should be submitted for the asset. With the approval of this form after submission, the declared value for your shipment may be lowered, which will significantly decrease the shipping costs. If it is unclear whether it is a capital asset or not, please contact your business office or the Property Accounting department

To submit a Property off Campus form:

  • Log into the OneCampus SAP Fiori System
  • Click on the Property Off Campus form
  • In the new window, enter the business area (40) for WL and your cost center number
  • Click create to generate the form
  • Complete the form and click submit

Once your form has been submitted and approved, please email a copy of the form to MMAD at mmdcshipping@purdue.edu, or attach a copy of the form to the shipping paperwork for your package.
