Default Fedex, UPS delivery suspension areas

USPS, UPS, and Fed Ex suspend deliveries to areas hard hit by Katrina

The three major shipping carriers have suspended deliveries to areas in Louisiana and Mississippi hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina.

The U.S. Postal Service yesterday said it will not accept from any source any Standard A Mail (letters and flats) or periodicals addressed for delivery to ZIP Codes that start with 369, 393, 394, 395, 396, 700, 701, and 704. It said it is working on plans to address the handling of mail already in the mail stream addressed to those ZIP Codes.

The postal service also won’t deliver Express Mail to Zip Codes 365-366 (Mobile, AL); 369, 393 (Meridian, MS); 394 (Hattiesburg, MS); 395 (Gulfport, MS); 396 (McComb, MS); 700-701 (New Orleans); 703 (Houma, LA); and 704 (Mandeville, LA).

Federal Express is discouraging shipments or suspending services to the Zip Codes 70000-70499 in New Orleans and 39426-39595 in Biloxi and Gulfport, MS, and the surrounding areas.

United Parcel Service also is discontinuing delivery and pickups to most of the same areas of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle due to storm damage and flooding. Packages already in the system will be returned to the shipper as permitted, UPS says.

All three carriers are posting updates on service to the affected areas on their web sites: www.fedex.com; www.usps.com; and www.ups.com.

The Postal Service also reports that it is suspending delivery to Mississippi for the following ZIP Codes: 36901, 36904, 36907, 36908, 36915, 36919, 36921, 36922, 36925, 39044, 39062, 39114, 39140, 39145, 39167, 39305, 39307, 39320, 39322, 39323, 39324, 39325, 39326, 39327, 39328, 39330, 39332, 39335, 39337, 39338, 39341, 39342, 39346, 39347, 39348, 39352, 39354, 39358, 39360, 39361, 39362, 39363, 39365, 39366, 39367, 39402, 39421, 39422, 39423, 39426, 39427, 39429, 39436, 39437, 39439, 39440, 39451, 39452, 39455, 39456, 39457, 39459, 39461, 39462, 39463, 39464, 39465, 39466, 39470, 39474, 39475, 39476, 39477, 39478, 39479, 39480, 39481, 39482, 39483, 39503, 39520, 39530, 39553, 39556, 39558, 39564, 39567, 39571, 39572, 39573, 39574, 39576, 39601, 39666, 39667.
