Owners of more than 400 independent vaping businesses have signed a letter urging FedEx to reconsider its decision to prohibit shipping of vaping products.
The signers include e-liquid manufacturers, vape product distributors, and vape shops of every size.
With a final Postal Service rule that will ban U.S. Mail delivery of vaping products due any day, many vape retailers—and their customers—face an uncertain future. Without at least one major nationwide shipper willing to deliver vaping products, many vapers will lose access to the products they need.
The letter to FedEx CEO Frederick W. Smith was organized by Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association (AVA). As Conley and the small business owners explain, the FedEx decision to no longer deliver legal vaping products is a huge competitive advantage for tobacco companies that sell their vape devices primarily through convenience stores and gas stations.
