Mandatory evacuations in parts of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas have been declared due to Hurricane Dorian.
Our primary concern is the safety of our employees, and therefore no pickups or delivery service will be provided in any area while under an evacuation order.
UPS is constantly monitoring the storm system and has contingency plans under review to mitigate the effects of severe weather on our services. Please check back here for updates.
Affected Areas - (DOWNLOAD ALL):
South Carolina (129)
Hurricane Dorian is expected to produce dangerous storm surge and hurricane-force winds along portions of the Florida east coast and the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina. The threat of flash flooding will increase today and tonight along the east coast of Florida, then extend up the southeast and mid-Atlantic coast during the middle and latter part of the week. Our contingency plans are in place and, as always, our priorities are the safety and well-being of our team members and minimizing the effects of potential storms on service. FedEx will be prepared to provide service to the best of our ability in areas affected by the storm and as local conditions allow.
Up to date information on weather advisories can be found at the National Weather Service.
