  • FedEx Scheduled Maintenance (1/3, 1/10, 1/17)

    Just wanted to alert everyone to the following scheduled maintenance outages for FedEx services:

    Saturday, 1/3/09 - 9pm-11pm CST, tracking services unavailable
    Saturday, 1/10/09 - 9pm-1am CST, rating, shipping, account validation, dispatch, and tracking services unavailable
    Saturday, 1/17/09 - 9pm-3am CST, all systems and services unavailable

    Although today's outage won't affect your customer's ability to checkout (and only affect them if they try to track a package during the downtime), the downtimes for the next two Saturdays will. If you are using a solution which gets real-time rates from FedEx, you may want to make sure failover methods are in place so customers can still place orders on your website.

    (I'd love to link to FedEx's web page detailing these outages, but - I can't find one. So, for now, you just have to trust me on this one... hehe.)
