San Francisco UPS Shipping Store Discusses Ban on Shipment of Vaping Products

San Francisco, Calif. – PO Plus, a San Francisco UPS shipping store, is discussing the United Parcel Service (UPS) impending ban on the shipment of all vaping products in the United States network. Scheduled to start on April 5, 2021, the ban will include all e-cigarettes and vaping products. Vaping and e-cigarettes have been a hot topic since their rise in popularity over recent years, and UPS is the latest carrier to impose restrictions on the product. 

UPS defines a vaping product as, “Any product intended for human consumption by inhalation that relies on vaporization or aerosolization.” 

The new ban comes as federal and state laws regarding these items are rapidly changing across the United States. The new laws and shipping bans are no surprise, as the products just entered the market only a few years ago, and lawmakers, as well as shipping companies, are starting to establish new policies as ongoing research becomes available. 

Business accounts dedicated to the shipment of vaping products will also be canceled as a result of the ban, including both the import and export shipments entering and exiting the US. Any continued shipment of the prohibited vaping products will be subject to a $150 prepackage fine, and continued violation of the new UPS policy has the potential to incur additional consequences, including but not limited to the termination of services.
