PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Our Vittoria Woodill knows a thing or two about good food, but she’s taking a break from restaurants tonight, because it’s the busiest shipping day of the year.
She stopped by the FedEx shipping center in Center City where packing pros are helping to box up and get gifts out in time for Christmas.
The weather may not feel like Christmas, but with only 3 days until the big day, there’s a last-minute dash to pack or ship gifts to loved ones.
Oodles of oodles of boxes continue to swing through the doors of FedEx and they predict a whopping 317 million packages will be delivered this holiday season.
And nothing is ever too small or too big- even lawn furniture- to ship.
There are plenty of trained packing and shipping experts on hand, FedEx says approximately 325,000 employees are working this holiday season.
