UPS Says Some Deliveries are Delayed
Wednesday December 6, 2017

UPS is a little behind schedule after last week's surge in online orders.
The delivery company said Tuesday that a small percentage of packages are being delivered one to two days late as the company works to clear a Cyber Week backlog. UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said delivery should be back on track by the end of the day Wednesday.
The company said it still expects most packages shipped between Thanksgiving and Christmas to arrive on time.
The holidays are always a frenzied period for delivery companies. But the growing popularity of online shopping has made for more packages to process and deliver.
This year's Cyber Monday was the largest online shopping day ever. A record $6.59 billion was spent online overall, according to Adobe Analytics data.
UPS predicts that it will deliver 750 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That's up 5% from last year, when UPS delivered 712 million packages.
The seasonal challenges have been compounded by the fact the improving economy has made it more difficult -- and expensive -- to find seasonal help.
This year, UPS brought on 95,000 seasonal workers for the holidays. It added the same number of people in 2015 and 2016.
