"We have got record numbers of volume of packages coming in this year and we have beefed up our staffing here to get more trucks to meet the needs of our customers," said Operations Manager Charles Cain.
"There is always something unusual, but every one is special and needs to be delivered on time," said FedEx Operations Manager Jennifer Sulk.
From the conveyor belt to the concrete, delivery workers drop off packages at their respective destinations.
It is estimated FedEx will deliver millions of packages this holiday season. Some are dropped off locally, others are sent and received on a global scale.
FedEx shipments have grown the past several years:
- Dec. 12, 2005 - 9.8 million shipments
- Dec. 18, 2006 - 10.6 million shipments
- Dec. 17, 2007 - 11.5 million shipments
- Dec. 15, 2008 - 12.0 million shipments
- Dec. 14, 2009 - 14.2 million shipments
- Dec. 13, 2010 - 15.6 million shipments
During the holiday season, FedEx said they expect to see more than 260 million shipments pass through its global network.
"We have packages going to France, others to China," said Cain. "We are shipping all over the world, definitely."
And no matter where the packages are headed, the goal remains the same, get it there on-time.
