Tis the season! The holidays will be here before we know it which means it’s time to start preparing for the rush of online shopping and gift shipping. According to recent forecasts by Deloitte, e-commerce sales are projected grow by 14-18% year-over-year during the 2019-2020 holiday season compared to the 2018 season. With this projected increase we can only assume the amount of packages being shipped will also skyrocket. Holiday shopping can be stressful, but ensuring your packages arrive on time doesn’t have to be.
As an early present to kick off the holiday season, the USPS®, UPS and FedEx are all delivering on Saturdays to help ensure your packages arrive on-time before the holidays. Below is a quick shipping guide for USPS, UPS and FedEx so you can prepare when to ship your packages so they arrive on or before December 25th.
