FedEx Response to Hurricane Irene

Memphis, Tenn. – Aug. 28, 2011 – FedEx is continuing to monitor the storm as it tracks north through New England today.  Contingency plans have been implemented to ensure the safety of our team members and lessen the storm’s impact on operations and service.

FedEx pick-up and delivery operations are closed on Sunday.  The focus today will be on assessing facilities in areas already impacted by the storm.  The full extent of the storm’s impact on operations on Monday will depend upon what areas may be inaccessible because of possible storm damage.  Widespread power outages, significant road flooding and downed trees are expected to result in some service delays as operations resume.  However, we want our customers to know that we are prepared to provide service to the best of our ability.
