SUPER BOWL SHIPPING DELAYS:

FedEx will be operating in the Atlanta metro area during Super Bowl LIII festivities this week though some customers in the Atlanta area may experience service delays during this time because of government security measures in place for Super Bowl LIII. Fed Ex encourages all customers shipping into the area to check with recipients to understand their locations relative to the security zones. Zip codes of the potentially impacted areas available on www.fedex.com.

USPS ZONE-BASED PRICING:

The United States Postal Office implemented zone-based pricing for first class packages on January 27, no longer offering flat rates. This will raise postage costs. The average difference between Zone 1 and Zone 9 pricing is $0.50. Previously, 1-15.999-ounce first class packages were billed at a flat-rate by weight, regardless of shipper or consignee address.

FED EX TRADE SLOW DOWN:

FedEx Corp. is hunkering down in the face of what it calls a trade slowdown. The parcel giant is starting a voluntary buyout program for some workers after problems in its express delivery business and it is pulling back international expansion plans ahead of what it says will be a further slowing of global trade.
