Mail Services at CSAIL

TIG is a Distributed Mail Center (DMC) which serves as the central delivery and pickup point for CSAIL mail.

United States Postal Service (USPS)

Individual MIT buildings (with a few exceptions, Stata is not one of the exceptions) are not serviced directly by the United States Postal Service. In fact, most of our buildings are not even on a postal route. This means that the letter carriers do not even enter our buildings. If a street address for one of our buildings is given as an address, it is not unusual, for the package to be delayed up to two days since it needs to be routed through WW-15.

“If MIT Mail Services signs for something, then the customer will also need to sign for it. If MIT Mail services does not sign for it, then it is considered first class mail and delivered according to the normal procedures, for CSAIL this is a daily bulk dropoff that TIG will sort and deliver.

Ground deliveries from FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.

-For CSAIL, Ground delivery is brought directly to the mail room in the basement. TIG retrieves this mail, sorts and then delivers it by 1PM. We are then called after the afternoon delivery arrives and we repeat the process above.
