How to Search:

Specify your chosen date range in the indicated fields, then choose your start and end points in the dropdowns below. You may search by library, (terminal entries are for a geographic area), and you may set your institution as either the sending or receiving library. Once the desired date range and your choice of origin and endpoint locations are set, clicking Submit will generate the report.

Reading and Exporting Reports:

When your report is generated, you will see pickup and delivery location information, the barcode for each bag put in transit, pickup and delivery dates, and transit time information. The database takes into account weekends and holidays (when the courier isn’t running), so along with the total Days in Transit figure, you will also see a breakdown of the number of business days versus the number of excluded days for the period of time that the courier handled your materials. Excluded days include weekends, holidays, and non-service days for libraries with less than five days a week delivery.
