Key Pieces of Information

  • National Transportation Impact: Relief efforts for both Harvey and preparations for Irma have strained the transportation industry by greatly reducing truck availability. This capacity constraint has the potential to delay service across the national network. Any delays caused by hurricane Harvey will be reported immediately by our client service department to those impacted. Our transportation operations department is working diligently to mitigate the impact to as few destinations as possible, for as short a time as possible.
  • USPS Processing and Delivery Facilities: The list will continue to change. To view the most current USPS information, visit https://about.usps.com/news/service-alerts/.
  • ZIP Code Impacted: During Katrina, the USPS requested mailers suppress specific ZIP Codes from the mail. At this time, they have not issued any zips for suppression. Should a client choose to suppress, a list of ZIP Codes for areas affected by disasters are available for download under Mail Service Disruption Report available at https://about.usps.com/news/service-alerts/business-weather-updates.htm.
