Lone Star Overnight (LSO) announced the company has begun to deliver vaping products, a business recently dropped by all major shipping companies.
A change to federal law in late 2020 specifically banned the U.S. Postal Service from delivering vaping products to consumers. In spring 2021, major shippers including FedEx and UPS voluntarily followed suit, citing the difficulty of complying with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) regulations.
“We pride ourselves on doing things that other guys can’t, in ways that they won’t,” said Richard Metzler, CEO of Lone Star Overnight. “This is one way that we differentiate ourselves from the larger parcel delivery companies who are totally backing away from vape delivery.”
LSO has made significant investment in compliance processes, procedures and developing systems that will mitigate the possibility that vaping products end up in the wrong hands, Metzler said.
LSO will initially provide delivery services within Texas with future expansion plans under development.
