Shipping to affected areas?
To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify whether their location is open or able to receive deliveries before and after the wildfires. In the event of evacuations, shipments not delivered before the wildfires will be secured in one of our facilities. Delivery will be attempted when it is safe to do so.
Note that potential service disruptions may not affect FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight, FedEx Office, etc. the same. This may result in different levels of impact as well as cities, states and ZIP Codes serviced.
