CMS customers within Thurston County should note that FedEx Express items may not receive overnight service if picked up at your location by CMS after 3:00 p.m. The FedEx departure from CMS for Express services is sooner than CMS drivers sometimes arrive back at our facility. Customers are welcome to drop off urgent items at CMS prior to the FedEx departure times. The FedEx Express departure time can also be moved up with little or no notice due to traffic or inclement weather issues in Western Washington or their hubs in other states.
Be sure to segregate these items from your regular mail so they are easily identified by CMS at your pick up location.
