FedEx is one of the most reputed names in the whole courier service industry. Though headquartered in Tennessee, United States the branches of FedEx are present in all parts of the world. Having millions of customers all over the world this name FedEx is known to everyone in the country. FedEx is known for its outstanding service and its main aim is to provide complete satisfaction to its customers. That is the reason why whenever it comes to send any gift, packages or mail the name of FedEx first comes into the mind of the people rather than thinking of any other courier service providers available in the country. The service of FedEx is so excellent that it never gives any opportunity to its customers to complain and always tries its best to provide optimum service to its customers. There have been hardly any times when FedEx has delayed in delivering the mail service as FedEx use to work throughout the week except Sunday and throughout the year except some federal holidays. But the biggest question that most of the FedEx customers have in their mind is that when FedEx observes holidays and when does FedEx stop delivering? Actually it is very important for the customer to know about the detailed list of FedEx holidays so that they do not get confused about when to ship their package and when not. But if the customer could know the holiday list in advance then it becomes possible for the FedEx customer to ship the package according to the holiday schedule of FedEx so that the shipment does not get stuck in transit due to the holidays. Hence it becomes very convenient for both FedEx as well as its customer if the holiday list is known in advance.

FedEx Holiday Schedule :
The customer of FedEx should also be aware of the working hours apart from knowing FedEx ground holiday schedule. This will definitely help the customers to plan their delivery and shipment date as per the holiday schedule of FedEx. But there is yet another problem – though FedEx has been providing outstanding service to its customers there are some customers who feel that FedEx should operate even on holidays as well. This happens because most of the FedEx customers are not completely aware of the significance of the federal holidays that US Government provides as there are many populations that have came to settle in the US from other countries. These people are totally ignorant about the significance of US federal holidays and they do not have any idea about when the holidays will be observed and why it will be observed. That is the reason why in this article we have come up with every detail of holiday list of FedEx so that you do not have any doubt regarding FedEx holidays`:
The following is the list of federal holidays that FedEx will observe in 2020 and when the offices of FedEx will remain closed throughout the country:
- Wednesday, January 1, 2020, as New Year’s Day: 1st January 2020 will remain closed at FedEx as a New Year day. This day is observed as a Federal holiday not only in the US but also in every country in this world. According to Gregorian and Julian calendar 1st January of every year is considered to be the first day of the year. In many countries along with the US Gregorian and Julian calendar is followed. As a result just like every other country the US Government and the US citizen observes this day as a federal holiday. All offices, colleges, and schools of the US take a break from their normal daily activities and enjoy the New Year day with great pomp and happiness. On this special day people generally do activities that includes taking, worshiping in the churches, visiting friends and relative’s house, gifting near and dear ones, doing parades, etc. On this special day FedEx also remains completely closed throughout the country and they do not operate any of their mail services except the emergency service which is an exceptional case. Hence all FedEx customers should make their shipment in such a way that their mail or package reaches their destination well before the New Year holiday.
- Sunday, April 12, 2020, as Easter: In 2020 Easter will be observed on 12th April. Easter is observed in all parts of the country since it is an important day for all Christians throughout the world. During this day people remember Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death. United States is a Christian country and in the US people observe Easter with great happiness. But Easter is observed on Sunday and hence on this holiday all schools, colleges, offices remain closed. But FedEx observes Easter every year since its inception. Thus though in 2020 Easter falls on Sunday FedEx decided to observe this holiday on the next day i.e., on 13th April 2020. That means all the FedEx office will remain closed for two continuous days i.e., from 12th April to 13th April. Thus, FedEx customers will not be able to deliver their packages or mail or gifts in these two days. So if you are a FedEx customer you have to be very alert and do your shipment in such a way that it gets delivered before 12th April 2020.
- Monday, May 25, 2020, as Memorial Day: In 2020 Memorial Day falls on May 25 which is a Monday. The other name of Memorial Day as Decoration Day.

Every year Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May month. This is the main significance of Memorial Day. Apart from that, this Memorial Day is the start of the summer season and thus on 25th May all offices, colleges, schools including FedEx will remain closed and it will not be possible to run any normal mail service on this day. If you have to deliver any emergency package or mail on this day then you have to avail FedEx emergency service rather than that of the normal mail service.

The people of America use to observe this day with great pomp and happiness. In the US all offices, schools, colleges closed on this day. FedEx is also not an exception and every year it remains closed on this day for celebrating Independence Day to the fullest extent. In 2020 Independence Day falls on Saturday due to which it becomes very problematic since almost all many offices already remain closed on Saturday as it is a weekend in the US. Due to this reason, FedEx has decided that they will celebrate Independence Day one day before 4th July. Thus FedEx office will again remain closed for three continuous days and no mail services will be running from July 3 to July 5. Hence, all FedEx customers should be aware of it and if they need to ship anything they must do your shipment well in advance otherwise it will get stuck in transit for 3 continuous days and there will be huge delay in getting the mail delivered.
