UPS Restoring Service Throughout Gustav Impact Area


DALLAS. – UPS today said it had restored package delivery service to most geographic areas touched by Hurricane Gustav.

The company successfully executed its contingency plans and no facilities or delivery vehicles suffered any substantial damage from the storm.

There are a few areas that stand as exceptions to the resumption of service, most notably New Orleans where the city government has yet to lift its mandatory evacuation order. UPS is prepared to resume service immediately to and from New Orleans once the company is allowed to send employees back to the city, even if generators are required to provide power.

Other areas still awaiting service are located primarily in Louisiana, including Houma and New Iberia. UPS is maintaining an up-to-date Hurricane Gustav “service update” on its main website,, listing the ZIP codes still impacted.
