INDIANA – Monday marks one of the busiest days for a company that employs thousands of Hoosiers.
"It's an exciting time of year and the pressure is good,” said FedEx Operations Manager Chuck Cain. “We enjoy the pressure, and we look forward to the challenge."
FedEx moved 17 million packages on Monday alone. That's almost double a normal day, and a 10 percent jump over last year.
FedEx hired 20,000 seasonal workers to help with the extra load. December 23rd is the last day to ship before Christmas.
