Did you forget to ship Great Aunt Martha’s Christmas gift? Lucky for you there is still time. Jennifer Caccavo is a spokesperson for FedEx and says taking care of procrastinators is their business. She says even if you have to get something out from Nebraska to California, New York City or even Alaska, we can get that for you.
Caccavo says mark December 23rd on your calendar as that is the last day you can ship a package overnight for delivery on December 24th. She says shipping earlier than that will save you that overnight delivery fee.
FedEx hired 20,000 seasonal and temporary workers to handle the extra load this year. Caccavo says business is up about 12% from last year and they will handle 260-million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
