Hurricane Matthew is impacting service in areas of the Southeast this week and our team is monitoring weather conditions. At this time, there will be no pickups or deliveries today in affected areas of South Carolina where immediate evacuations have been ordered.

We will work to ensure the safety of our employees and to not impact evacuation routes while minimizing effects on service. Contingency plans are being implemented to ensure that shipments arrive at their final destinations as quickly as conditions permit.

At this time, Florida is fully operational and our team will continue to assess conditions and decisions by the local authorities.


FedEx is closely monitoring Hurricane Matthew. Contingency plans are in place to ensure the safety and well-being of our team members and to minimize the effects of the storm on service. These storms often cause pickup and delivery delays and disruptions for FedEx customers. FedEx will be prepared to provide service to the best of our ability in areas affected by the storm and as local conditions allow.

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 this storm. In the event of evacuations, shipments not delivered before the storm 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. - 24/7 Support including Chat
