Fedex could miss some deliveries on Christmas Eve due to high volume
FedEx has informed that its team is working hard to deliver gifts and other items to Americans on Christmas Eve but due to surge in volume of orders, it may not be possible to deliver all the orders scheduled for Christmas delivery. FedEx has also offered the option to customers to pick up their packages at its Express offices across the country.
In case you urgently need your package on Christmas Eve, you can visit your nearest Federal Express office and pick up your package. FedEx said that due to inclement weather, some of the shipments have been delayed.
Additionally, online shopping websites have registered a strong growth in orders during the Holidays week and shipping companies are finding it hard to meet the volume growth.
Customers can track their shipment and see if it has been scheduled for delivery on Christmas Eve on Fedex.com or can call 800-463-3339.
According to report published in Associated Press, FedEx is expecting record 317 million shipped items during the holiday season. FedEx estimated nearly 12 percent growth in volume between Black Friday and Christmas Eve compared to the same period last year.
As online shopping websites have offered deep discounts and customers have more money to spend, the sales have picked up this year.
FedEx Express offices will be open from 9 am to 1 pm. FedEx’s other offices will remain closed.
According to a shipment tracking company, 98 percent of the deliveries are as per the scheduled shipping.
A USAToday report said, “FedEx is hiring more than 55,000 seasonal workers to help handle the additional volume, up from about 50,000 last year. The company has also been investing billions of dollars in recent years to improve the capacity and automation of its network, including expanding current facilities and building new ones, as the shift in consumer shopping habits has put pressure on retailers and shipping companies to beef up delivery services.”
