These are the shipping dates you need to know for Christmas delivery


The company's survey tracks millions of packages, he said. End-of-year revenue is generally about 15 percent higher than in other quarters, while daily volume almost doubles.

For holiday gifts being shipped by regular ground service, FedEx is advising customers to ship their gifts no later than December 15 for delivery by Christmas.

With an increased number of deliveries, the company is offering an app to help customers coordinate their deliveries to make sure they're secure.

If UPS is your delivery Santa - and both Supply Chain trade magazine and Forbes call it the world's largest delivery company - no matter where in the world Grandma lives, chances are the package will go through the UPS Worldport at Louisville International Airport. The Atlanta-based courier posted a 94.4 percent on-time rate the previous week.

FedEx Ground will not deliver on Saturday, Dec. 23. Steve Gaut, a spokesman for UPS, said delivery performance improved last week from the week before. The Atlanta-based firm sent special teams to hubs around the country to contend with soaring demand that created what Gaut called a "bubble" in its network after Black Friday.

According to Anderson, nationwide USPS will deliver more than 15 billion pieces of mail this holiday season, including 850 million packages. Those locations have since caught up to greater-than-expected volume, he said.

The bubble has now dissipated, Gaut said.

"We're in a position to complete the peak season satisfying our customers".

UPS rose less than one per cent to close at US$118.40 in NY, while FedEx climbed 1.1 per cent to US$242.02.
