MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) – FedEx and UPS, two of the world’s largest shipping companies, have announced they are suspending delivery services to Ukraine and Russia as the dispute between the countries escalates.

“Given the current circumstances, we will temporarily suspend service to and from Ukraine until further notice,” Memphis-headquartered FedEx said in a statement. “The safety of our team members is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and implementing contingency plans to minimize the impact.

According to UPS and FedEx, inbound and outbound services to Ukraine have been halted, as well as deliveries to Russian destinations.

Atlanta-based UPS said: “Packages in transit that cannot be delivered will be returned to sender free of charge whenever possible.”

The company also said it was monitoring the situation closely and would restart the service “as soon as it is practical and safe to do so.”

FedEx added that money-back guarantees are currently suspended for all services in Europe until further notice.

UPS said its money-back guarantee does not apply “when service is affected by circumstances beyond UPS’s control.”
