Does UPS Deliver on Labor Day? FedEx, USPS Package Shipment Details for Sept. 5 – CNET

Labor Day weekend is here, which means it’s a long weekend for many of us. If you’ve already been shopping Labor Day sales and have some inbound packages that you’re waiting for, odds are that you’re wondering whether they will arrive on Monday or not. Shipping companies like UPS, Fedex and even the US Postal Service all operate on different schedules, which can make anticipating deliveries a bit difficult, despite USPS offering a service to show you what’s coming before it arrives.

Don’t worry, though. We’ve check out the schedules to find out if companies like FedEx, USPS and UPS deliver on Monday, Sept. 5 or not.


Does UPS deliver on Labor Day?

Unfortunately, UPS is closed for pickup and delivery service on Sept. 5, which is Labor Day. This means that while packages may move around between hubs, no deliveries will be made and all UPS Store physical locations will also be closed.

Normal service will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Looking for other days that will be affected by UPS closures? Check out this full list of holidays now.


Labor Day and FedEx deliveries

Select services will be running in at least limited capacity. FedEx Office stores will have modified hours, FedEx Same-Day City services will be modified and FedEx Custom Critical will remain open. Regular services like FedEx Ground, Express and Home Delivery are all closed for Labor Day.
