    Do you allow 18 wheelers on campus for deliveries?  Do you have a policy on 18 wheelers being on campus?  Thanks!

    We do allow 18-wheelers on campus - and they are here for deliveries each day.
    When we know something is coming - like a large furniture delivery - we work with the shipper to let them know the challenges of delivering to an urban environment with a 53 foot truck with a large sleeper cab.
    many of our daily deliveries are in smaller trucks - pup's or box trucks - as our dock spaces are difficult at best to get into.

    Best thing we have done is work to develop relationships with the shippers/companies that are regularly on campus to have them bring smaller trucks or no sleepers to campus.

    Hope that helps.
