Material Distribution Services (MDS)
To reduce the amount and size of delivery trucks operating on campus, products purchased on ShopUW+ are consolidated at the Verona Operations warehouse facility before delivery to the end user. In compliance with UW-Madison’s Large Truck Policy, MDS sorts inbound packages by delivery zone Monday through Friday and typically ships them for same-day delivery using a fleet of vehicles that are less than 30 feet in length. Next-business-day delivery to the surrounding Dane County area is available for most orders. MDS does not accept radioactive material, inhalation hazards, or any large non-palletized items.
The Verona Operations MDS warehouse offers warehouse space for rent to University of Wisconsin departments, and other State of Wisconsin agencies. We offer centralized, convenient, state-of-the-art services, including:
- Long-term and short-term storage rates
- Clean, dry, temperature-controlled facilities
- Access to your stored inventory during normal business hours
- Capability to develop customized electronic catalogs that allow ordering through ShopUW+ and next business-day delivery
- Storage rate lower than state contract rates, including pickup and delivery service
