Despite much talk about a gloomy economy, the packages are flying at FedEx.
Today is projected to be the busiest day, in which 17 million packages will move around the world.
While that’s more than two weeks before Christmas, Brie Carery, FedEx Canada’s vice-president of marketing and customer experience, attributes it partly to businesses trying to restock their shelves.
That’s up from last year’s peak day of 15.6 million, she said.
“We’re also seeing people doing their shopping online instead of going to the mall, and shipping their items to home,” Carery said.
