A brand new year is right around the corner, which is why it is important for you to know if the special goodies you ordered for 2023 will arrive in time and when your loved ones will receive the presents you bought for them.

Delivery services will be affected around New Year's Day as most shipping providers will re-open their doors again after staying shut for a day or two.

Here's what you need to know about the nationally posted service and shipping schedules for major shipping companies.

United States Postal Service (USPS):

All post offices are normally closed Sundays. And since the coming New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, all post offices across the country will be closed on Jan. 1.

When a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is treated as a holiday for most USPS employees. Hence, in addition to Jan. 1, all post offices will also be closed on Monday, Jan. 2.

Regular mail will not be delivered on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2. However, Priority Mail Express deliveries will be made on both days, but only in limited locations.

Mail will also not be picked up from Blue Collection Boxes on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2.


No pickup or delivery services will be provided on New Year's Day (Jan. 1) or Jan. 2.

All UPS Store locations will also remain shut on Jan. 1. However, some UPS Store locations might be open with modified business hours on Jan. 2.


All FedEx services will come to a halt on Jan. 1 except for the FedEx Custom Critical, which will operate on New Year's Day as per usual.

The FedEx Same Day City service will also be available on Jan. 1, but with modified services.

All FedEx services will resume on Jan. 2, except for FedEx Express and FedEx Freight.

In addition to this, some FedEx services will remain shut on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 or offer modified services. Click here to find out more.
