Monday is the busiest shipping day for USPS and FedEx
It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but for the US Postal Service, it’s also the busiest.
Today is the biggest mailing day of the year.
More than 640 million cards and packages are expected to be processed by USPS.
That’s up from last year’s 607 million packages.
USPS says online shopping and web sales are the reason for more deliveries.
FedEx expects today to be their biggest day in history, predicting more than 22 million packages.
They have hired an additional 50,000 seasonal employees to deal with the heavy volume.
Procrastinators you’re in luck. The post office will be open 7 days this coming week.
The deadline for packages that need to arrive by Christmas is next Saturday and for “priority shipping” it’s as late as Tuesday, Dec. 23.
