Tallahassee, FL -- December 22, 2011 --
If you've waited until today to ship those holiday gifts and letters, you're not alone.
Today is the busiest shipping day of the year for UPS. The shipping giant says about twenty-six million people will use its services today to ship goods all across the globe. And about 120 million people will be using UPS to ship gifts and letters just over the next six days. That's about 300 packages every minute.
To meet that growing demand, UPS says it's adding an additional 400 flights a day each day.
