FedEx is preparing for record package volume on Cyber Monday, December 2.
The global integrator, expects to move more than 33 million packages through the FedEx global network on that day alone, and to more than double its average daily package volume on the two Mondays that follow.
The spikes on Mondays are attributed to weekend online shopping, resulting in orders hitting retailers’ shipping cycles early in the week, and driving strong demand for residential delivery.
“E-commerce continues to grow, and FedEx is ready to deliver this holiday and beyond,” said Brie Carere, executive vice president, chief marketing and communications officer, FedEx Corp.
“We recognised early on that e-commerce would transform the way our customers shop and ship, and we have invested in a world-class network that flexes to meet volume demands throughout the year.”
