Note: on the date of a UPS non-shipping holiday, you will see a red alert at the top of the page within ShippingEasy. The alert is a courtesy reminder to move ship dates forward to the next shipping date. You may see a red alert on other dates as we also include USPS postal holidays in our alerts (USPS observes more holidays than UPS does).

UPS has also published a detailed breakdown of how the year-end holidays will affect their various services. Read through the complete UPS year-end holiday schedule.
