As cases of the Omicron version of the coronavirus increased, FedEx paused its domestic express freight services on Tuesday due to a staffing shortage.
Domestic FedEx express freight, including FedEx two-day freight and FedEx three-day freight, will be suspended, according to the delivery company.
FedEx stated that international economy freight pick-up services, which had been halted earlier, had resumed on Monday.
Last month, the business warned that an increase in cases of the Omicron variety had resulted in a staff shortage and delays in aircraft shipments.
Last month, several US airlines had to cancel flights due to severe winter storms across the country and crew shortages.
According to a major Newswire calculation, coronavirus deaths in the United States increased by at least 2,266 on Monday to a total of 890,049, up from 887,783 the day before.
