As more and more people shop online for gifts this holiday season, that adds up to some extremely busy days for delivery drivers. UPS is currently ramping up for its 107th holiday season, and one of the drivers we talked with says this season has been his busiest on record.
Tony Marino has been a driver with UPS for 25 years. Last week he delivered 300-350 packages, this week he is looking up to 450 packages. He says that breaks his records for last year already.
To make the holiday season a bit less hectic, UPS has been hiring helpers for the past few years to help their drivers during the holidays. So don’t be surprised if you see two drivers helping out in one neighborhood. The busiest mailing day of the year is December 16th, with an estimated six million customers mailing packages. If you’re shipping a package for the holidays and you want it there before Christmas, UPS recommends you ship it by early next week.
