UCSF Package Delivery Program

About the UCSF Package Delivery Program (PDP) (formerly Last-Mile Package Delivery)

Logistics receives hundreds of packages daily at our facility from the commonly used vendors, e.g., Fisher, VWR, OfficeMax, USPS, and Give Something Back Office Supplies, as well as carriers such as UPS, Fedex, etc. Packages delivered after 8 a.m. will be delivered to the department the following business day. All deliveries require a signature. Proof of delivery assures that the package is received at its destination safely and securely.

Campuswide Rollout

Logistics has provided package delivery since 2010. Expansion of our program occurred in 2016, and will be rolled out campuswide in early 2018.

Requesters are instructed to select their “paired” address that contains “616 Forbes Blvd., South San Francisco” as the delivery location in BearBuy. This enables non-urgent packages (any shipment that does not require next day receipt prior to 2 p.m.) to be routed through Logistics at Oyster Point for the same day delivery to your department.

The PDP is embedded in the UCSF Long Range Development Plan through the year 2035. PDP reduces the impact of additional delivery vehicles in the neighborhoods adjacent to UCSF. The reduction of truck traffic is a major commitment to our neighbors made by the UCSF Community and Government Relations Department.

Additionally, the PDP program aligns with the UCSF Office of Sustainability’s requirement for the university to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2020.
