The USPS, FedEx, and UPS have all announced they will end shipping for electronic vaping devices and the related component parts to homes in the coming months of 2021. The vape shipping bans go into effect on the follow dates for each carrier:
FedEx: March 1st, 2021
UPS: April 5th, 2021
USPS: April 26th, 2021
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.
For more information on the FedEx policy, read FedEx’s 2021 Service Guide.
