FedEx prepares for busiest day in history

(WMC-TV) – FedEx is getting ready for what it predicts will be the busiest day in company history next month.

The company expects to ship more than 19 million packages Monday, December 10. That is 10 percent more than FedEx shipped on its busiest day last year - and more than double the volume it handles on an average day.

FedEx says it thinks online shopping and people mailing holiday packages will bring more than $280 million shipments through the company in the next month.

To handle all of that extra volume, FedEx had added 20,000 seasonal positions to help make the deliveries.
