Logistics in Newport

The OSU Ship Operations facility in Newport can provide short-term storage for scientific equipment before and after a scheduled cruise and staging areas for the assembly or disassembly of equipment. Since these facilities may be used by a variety of science groups, their use is limited to a few days before the cruise and the day after. Any planned use must be identified in advance and coordinated with the Marine Superintendent. Additional information is available in our Support Services Manual, which is available by request.

  1. Shipping and Receiving

Freight shipments should be addressed to:

OSU Ship Operations 
2020 SE OSU Drive 
Newport, OR 97365-5275

Please make sure that all shipments are clearly marked with the cruise number and responsible scientist. Shipments not marked may be refused if they can't be identified. No COD shipments will be accepted. Questions regarding shipments should be addressed to the Shipping/Receiving contact listed earlier in this section.

Outgoing shipments can be made but all items must be appropriately packed, clearly marked, and an inventory provided to Shipping/Receiving. We would prefer that the responsible scientist make arrangements with the shipper for pickup and payment but we can ship and then bill the Chief Scientist.

All freight deliveries or pickups, including equipment brought by scientists which will require Ship Operations cranes or forklifts to handle, should be scheduled for the normal workday (0800-1630). Special arrangements can be made when the ship is loading or unloading on a weekend or holiday.

Anything sent by U.S. Mail should also be addressed to:

OSU Ship Operations 
2020 SE OSU Drive 
Newport, OR 97365-5275

Additional support can be made available by request. Such support includes purchasing compressed gas, chemicals, dry ice, etc.; packing equipment; assisting with "in-water" testing of equipment off the dock; or providing staging space for equipment testing. Arrangements should be coordinated with the Marine Superintendent. Any direct costs, including labor, must be reimbursed.

  1. Parking at Ship Ops

Ship Ops recommends car-pooling whenever possible, as parking space is limited.  If you do need to park a vehicle at Ship Ops during your cruise, please contact Ship Ops prior to your arrival to see if there will be room in the gated yard.

Drivers should park against the East Fence (if room), else park in the Northeast section of the gated yard.  A set of keys should be dropped off at the Office, with an attached note listing the drivers name, cell phone number and the date the vehicle will depart Ship Ops. Be sure to let Ship Ops know if another driver will be picking up the vehicle.

Hours to access the gated yard is Monday-Friday, 0800-1630.  Ship Ops will move any vehicle if it’s in the way for loading or unloading of vans or science gear.
