Shipping to affected areas?
To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify if their location is accepting shipments before and after the 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.

Consistent with the provisions of the FedEx Service Guide, the money-back guarantee will not apply to FedEx® shipments affected by weather. Continue to check fedex.com for service updates. For specific shipment status information, please track your shipment at fedex.com. You can also contact FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339.
