Package delivery services for Memorial Day & 4th of July
Does USPS, FedEx, UPS, or DHL deliver packages on Memorial Day?
Memorial Day is a federal holiday always observed on the last Monday of May. For this reason, the mail service does not run on Memorial Day, nor does UPS, FedEx, DHL or USPS.
On 2021, Memorial Day will be celebrated on May 31st, which means the last regular delivery day is Friday, May 28th. If you are buying supplies for your celebration online, we recommend organising the shipping service 3-5 working days in advance. Choose our Express Service for the fastest shipping solution on this Memorial Day and have your package delivered in 24h within the US.
And what about online shopping – does Amazon and other stores deliver on Memorial Day?
Since most online stores such as Amazon or eBay uses logistics companies such as FedEx, USPS or UPS to deliver their parcels, they have to comply with the courier’s schedule. Therefore, Memorial Day is considered a shipping holiday in which Amazon will not deliver parcels. Regular shipping activities are resumed on the following Tuesday, June 1st.

4th OF JULY – INDEPENDENCE DAY
Does FedEx, USPS, UPS, and DHL deliver packages on the 4th of July?
Since it is also considered a federal holiday, mail and package delivery services do not run on the 4th of July. However, since on 2021 the Independence Day falls on a Sunday, this holiday will be observed on the following Monday, the 5th of July. Therefore, courier companies such as FedEx, USPS, UPS and DHL will not deliver packages on the 4th and 5th of July in 2021.
Play it safe and send your goods ahead when preparing for the 4th of July celebrations to avoid any inconvenience. Since the last regular delivery date will be the previous Friday (July 2nd), the ideal scenario would be to schedule the pick-up for Wednesday at the latest.
What to do if your package is not delivered before Memorial Day or the 4th of July?
If your mail or package is not delivered until Memorial Day or the 4th of July, the courier companies will deliver it on the following working days, without any further action needed from your side. Please have in mind that the holidays are extremely busy periods for the courier and postal companies. Still, you can rest assured they will deliver as many packages as possible before the day off.
