It is the busiest time of year for shipping companies. FedEx says a record number of holiday packages are on track to arrive this year. The company hasn't released an estimate of just how may packages it'll handle this holiday season, but says customer service levels have been "outstanding." ShipMatrix, which tracks the shipping industry, estimates FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service all together typically deliver about 60-million packages a day during the holidays.
