Does UPS deliver on Labor Day? FedEx, USPS Package Shipment Details for September 5

Labor Day weekend is here, which means it’s a long weekend for many of us. If you have already done your shopping labor day sales and you are expecting incoming packages, chances are you are 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 offers a service to show you what’s coming before he arrives.

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


Does UPS deliver on Labor Day?

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

Normal service will resume on Tuesday, September 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

Unlike UPS, things are a little more complicated with FedEx because the company has many delivery divisions. For the most part, residential deliveries are closed on Monday, September 5 and will resume on September 6.

Some services will operate at least with 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.

For a complete list of holidays that FedEx closes, be sure to check that list with the carrier.
