FedEx resumed service to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport this morning and began restoring pickup and delivery in eastern Japan.
Inbound shipments to eastern Japan, Guam, Okinawa and Saipan were being accepted, excluding perishables, inbound FedEx International Express Freight, FedEx Airport-to-Airport and FedEx International Premium services. Service delays may occur, however.

The company said pickup and delivery service in eastern Japan would resume except for Koriyama-Shi, Sendai-Shi and Miyagino-Ku.
“We are working to restore normal service commitments across eastern Japan as soon as is practicable,” FedEx’s web site said. “Pick-up and delivery services in western Japan are normal.”

A day earlier, FedEx said it had stopped taking shipments bound for Narita and east Japan because of instability of transportation, power and fuel infrastructure.
