Shipping deadlines for holiday delivery

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- There are fewer than two weeks remaining before Christmas, and the deadline to ship packages before then is rapidly approaching.

Fedex expected Monday would be the busiest shipping day of the year.  The company processed an estimated 16 million packages Monday.  That's double the volume of a normal day and up 13% over the busiest day in 2009.

Fedex expects to deliver more than 220 million parcels this holiday season. UPS will work through about 430 million packages.

If you want to pay the cheaper rate for your present to arrive by Christmas you'll have to have it in to the Fedex or UPS systems by the end of this week.
