Standard Daily Operations

FedEx is now conducting standard daily operations in the eastern coastal areas of the U.S. recently affected by Hurricane Dorian. Previous hazardous conditions across the area have subsided and FedEx is now back to standard daily operations.

Note that some isolated areas remain inaccessible and there may be on-going service delays due to local conditions.

As always, FedEx appreciates your business and your patience during weather-related disruptions. We encourage you to continue to check for the latest news.  You can stay up to date by subscribing to service disruption email notifications at the FedEx Service Alert email notifications at the FedEx Email Subscription Center.

Residential Alerts

We want the recipients of FedEx packages to be as pleased with the experience as the businesses that choose to use our service. That's why when weather and other unplanned circumstances cause delays with your delivery, we want to keep you informed. FedEx Delivery Manager puts the power to manage your package in the palm of your hand.

A regulatory update can be issued to communicate any of the following:

  • A previously published regulatory alert is still in effect.
  • Deadlines have been extended.
  • Recently announced requirements have changed.

Online Fraud Alert

We have received reports of multiple fraudulent email campaigns disguised as FedEx delivery notices. These malicious spam emails can contain hyperlinks which, when clicked, will connect users to a compromised website that is hosting malware and can infect their computers or mobile devices. In addition, some of these emails may include an attachment, which, if opened, could infect the recipient's computer or mobile device.

These fraudulent emails have appeared with a variety of subject lines, to include the following:

  • "Last reminder: First Name Last Name, please respond immediately."
  • "FedEx: Not possible to make delivery"
  • "FedEx Express Ticket #12345"
  • "First Name FedEx International #12345"
  • If you receive a message matching the description above or any email that looks suspicious, do not open the email or click on any hyperlink. Do not open any attachment. Delete the email immediately or forward it to 

FedEx does not send unsolicited emails to customers requesting information regarding packages, invoices, account numbers, passwords or personal information. Unsolicitied emails from an unauthorized third party cannot be prevented by FedEx. 

If you are expecting an email from FedEx, confirm the email was sent from an official FedEx email address ( and never access any hyperlink that does not point to

In the fraudulent example above, the email contains a subject line “Last reminder: FirstName LastName, please respond immediately.” Selecting the button “Update My Address” will create a new email message prepopulated with a list of email addresses. This button, when clicked, could potentially execute code in the background which may be malicious. In addition, sending your physical address to any of the listed email addresses could potentially set you up as a target for additional scams.
