As of April 26th, the USPS will no longer permit the shipment of any electronic vaping device and the related component parts. This restriction is part of the COVID Stimulus bill (see page 5,136) that recently added these substances and devices to the PACT Act of 2009.
These limitations are not only in place for purely USPS services, but also hybrid services such as Mail Innovations or SurePost that use the USPS for last-mile delivery.
Additionally, FedEx has announced that, effective March 1, 2021, they will no longer ship parcels containing electronic cigarettes and their component parts, any other similar device that relies on vaporization or aerosolization, and any non-combustible liquid or gel, regardless of the presence of nicotine, that can be used with any such device. For more information, read FedEx’s 2021 Service Guide.
