FedEx, UPS say winter storms disrupt U.S. operations

Harsh winter storms sweeping across the United States are wreaking havoc on FedEx and UPS parcel delivery operations.

“Prolonged inclement weather continues to impact much of the FedEx network in the United States, including the ability to pick up and deliver to certain cities,” FOX Business said.

The company did not specify which cities are experiencing the greatest impacts due to winter storms that continue to bring freezing rain, snow and sub-freezing temperatures to parts of the United States, from Oregon, from the Midwest, from the plains of the south to the deep south.

Likewise, UPS posted a notice on its website stating that “significant weather events” across the United States are impacting the UPS network. The delays will affect consumers wherever they are, with some delivery times extended by 90 minutes at the end of the day, the company said.

“While your location is not affected by weather conditions, the movement of packages over the network may be affected by weather conditions in other areas,” UPS said in a statement.

However, both companies have contingency plans in place to help reduce the impact of weather conditions on their operations and are working to move packages “as quickly as conditions allow.”

FedEx customers are encouraged to monitor the Service Alerts page on the company’s website for updates. UPS customers are also encouraged to track their shipments and recent delays online.
