FedEx planned outage July 18-19


Due to planned technical maintenance by FedEx, you will not be able to create FedEx shipments between 9:00 p.m. July 18, 2020, and 5:00 a.m. CDT July 19, 2020. For more information, please see the FedEx announcement.


Probably a good thing that Amazon kicked FedEx to the curb a while ago so this will have little to no impact on Amazon sellers.

That being said, maybe Amazon should take a lesson from this. FedEx planned this in advance and gave us all warning so we could be prepared for it. Amazon just makes the changes and says “SURRISE!!!”


I must say I’d rather have a planned outage once a year on a Saturday night than the unplanned outages that we get with UPS semi-weekly during the work-week.
