US – Waiting for the delivery guy to show up with that Christmas gift you just ordered online? Yeah, you and everyone else! The FedEx truck rolling up outside will be a welcome sight for online shoppers!

Today is the busiest day for FedEx ever. They are expecting to process 19 million packages today.

The company is expected to process more than 200 packages a second.

FedEx had to hire an additional 20,000 seasonal workers to help with the surge of deliveries.

FedEx expects the total amount of packages shipped between Thanksgiving and Christmas to be about 280 million – up 13% from last year. This could even be a sign of an improved economy.

Let’s just hope everything arrives in good condition!
