FedEx Corp.  expects to move more than 17 million shipments – almost double its daily average volume – through its global networks on 12 December, the projected busiest day in company history. Between Thanksgiving in the US and Christmas, FedEx forecasts more than 260 million shipments will move through its worldwide shipping networks. This is a 12 per cent increase for the holiday season over last year when 232 million shipments were processed.

 FexEx noted that E-commerce is playing a key role in generating this seasonal growth and in overall global trade in general. Retail inventory such as apparel, personal consumer electronics and luxury goods as well as books and other items from large internet retailers will account for a large portion of FedEx holiday volumes.
