Monday is expected to be the biggest mailing day of the year for the U.S. Postal Service and FedEx and UPS think it may be their biggest day in history.
When you order a gift online or send it in the mail, a lot has to happen to get it to your door step in time for the holidays. Abc27 News took a sneak peek inside the FedEx facility in Middletown, to see the hustle and bustle that happens during the holiday season.
It takes a whole team of people, in the holiday spirit, to make sure your package arrives on time.
Package safety is a top priority. When a package is on its way, but you are not available to receive it, there are options for people to ensure a safe delivery.
You can call ahead and request a custom delivery. There is also the option of picking up a package at a FedEx office. You can also request a vacation hold, so that no packages will arrive until you return home.
You should also properly pack packages, to make sure they arrive in great condition.
