FedEx Express Shipments to SJSU

Distribution Services has experienced delays with the arrival of shipments to SJSU from some of our major carriers. To resolve delays, FedEx Express (not FedEx Ground) shipments for SJSU are picked up by Distribution Services staff from FedEx’s Dado Street facility each weekday morning.  By collecting the shipments ourselves, we can ensure they are delivered to campus departments in a timely manner.

The shipper and/or recipient may receive FedEx Express tracking messages notifying them that their mail or package is being held for pickup at the Dado Street facility.  Please disregard the notifications from FedEx about package pickup as they are unable to turn off this message feature.

If you have any questions, please contact Sonja Bowsky, Distribution Services Manager, at 4-1592 or .
