FedEx Team Members Are Preparing For A Record-breaking Day At FedEx Corp. On Monday, December 10, When 19 Million Packages Are Expected To Move Through The FedEx Networks On What Is Projected To Be The Busiest Day In Company History. (Photo: Business Wire)

The Efficiency of the FedEx Networks

The depth and breadth of the FedEx networks will be flexed this holiday season to meet holiday shipping deadlines. The resources FedEx has at its fingertips include:

  • 300,000+ team members
  • 90,000+ vehicles
  • 660+ aircraft
  • 1,800+ FedEx Office locations
  • More than 660 FedEx Express and 520 FedEx Ground facilities nationwide
  • Many modes of transportation, including boats and gondolas, electric tricycles, all-electric delivery vans and hybrid-electric delivery vans
  • The Memphis World Hub that, when working at peak capacity, sorts 500,000 packages per hour across 42 miles of conveyor belt

FedEx has experienced steady growth in holiday volumes over the last several years. Past busiest day volumes include:

  • 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 million shipments
  • Dec. 14, 2009 – 14.2 million shipments
  • Dec. 13, 2010 – 15.6 million shipments
  • Dec. 12, 2011 – 17.2 million shipments

FedEx Shipping Solutions

Last-minute gift-givers still have plenty of time to ensure their gifts arrive on time. Though the deadline for pre-Christmas delivery via FedEx Ground is December 17, last-minute shippers still have options. More than 82 percent of all packages shipped via FedEx Ground are delivered in three business days or less. Plus, procrastinators have until Saturday, December 22 to ship items via FedEx Express for delivery in the continental U.S. on December 24.
