UPS Expects To Ship 630M Packages This Holiday Season

630 million? That's a lot of packages. Let's not forget UPS has a bad track record with shipping estimates. The company missed estimates last year and the year before and had a hell of a time just getting packages delivered. Maybe the third time is a charm?

"The growth of online shopping and returns continues to redefine the holiday peak season at UPS," said chief commercial officer Alan Gershenhorn during an investor conference call on quarterly financial results. For the period from Thanksgiving through December, UPS expects to handle more than 630 million packages.
