It's showtime for UPS. The carrier says today's peak shipping day will be the busiest in its history.
The men and women in brown will deliver 28 million packages in the US, that's about 300 parcels every second.
Worldwide UPS will deliver a record 135 million packages this week alone.
To save yourself some time before heading out the door, here are some packaging tips.
•Use at least 2 inches of packaging peanuts around items.
•Use packing tape on all package seams.
•Be certain the sender’s and recipient’s addressed are both clearly visible both inside and outside the package.
•Use new boxes for shipping, instead of trying to reuse old boxes or gift boxes.
•Take batteries out of items before shipping.
Tomorrow's the deadline to make sure your gifts arrive by Christmas Eve.
