Service Updates

Please see information below for latest service updates and disruptions worldwide.

Courier/parcel delivery updates

last updated: 11/7/2018

Vanuatu - Service Issues

UPS services to Vanuatu are suspended until further notice.

Turkmenistan - Service Issues

UPS services to Turkmenistan are suspended until further notice.

France - Service Issues

The Tour de France event is taking place between Saturday 7th July and Sunday 29th July inclusive. Road closures will take place along the route of the cycle race, though courier companies will do their utmost to minimise the impact on pick-ups and deliveries.

Russian Federation - Service Issues

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place in the Russian Federation from 14th June to 15th July inclusive. Service disruption is expected.

There may be delays in air transit times due to increased passenger travel and airline cargo restrictions.

There will also be additional security checks on cargo at airports, and restricted road traffic around match locations due to FIFA requirements—areas around stadiums have to be closed for any activities, including deliveries and pick-ups. This applies from Monday 28th May 2018 until Sunday 15th July inclusive.

Comoros - Service Issues

Air Austral, used by UPS, is no longer able to load express shipments due to a lack of cargo capacity. UPS temporarily closed sales to this destination but are now using an alternative route via Mayotte.

Algeria - Service Issues

There has been a temporary ban on exports of non-documents from Algeria, which will hopefully resume shortly.
