Delivery and Drop-off Information

All deliveries, including document and package drop offs, must be brought to the Freeman Loading Dock on East Central Park Place located on the west side of the Freeman Building. Dock hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.


Access to the Freeman Loading Dock is from Columbus Ave and East Central Park Place via Cedar street. Going north on Cedar Street, turn right (east) on Columbus Ave (just after the National Guard Armory). Follow the street as it turns left up the hill, and half-way up the hill you'll see the loading dock doors on the right side of the street.

Pull into one of the available dock bays or ring the outside bell if dock doors are closed. Dock staff will take possession of your delivery and contact the appropriate recipient of your delivery.
