NEW YORK (WKOW) -- UPS expects to deliver 527 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, surpassing last year's record high by 10 percent.
UPS projects the busiest day of the year to be Thursday, December 20. The world's largest package delivery company estimates 28 million of those will be delivered on that day. That's nearly double what the Atlanta company moves on an average day.
To handle the increase, UPS plans to hire 55,000 seasonal workers to sort, load and deliver packages. That's the same number it hired last year.
