UPS Having Trouble Handling Holiday Online Orders

You would think that companies like UPS would have the holiday rush down pat by now. I mean, it's not like holidays come on the same day every year so you can plan ahead. roll eyes (sarcastic)

United Parcel Service is facing more holiday volume than it was expecting because everyone likes shopping online for the holidays, reports The Wall Street Journal, which could have a big impact on the season: according to an analysis of millions of packages by software developer ShipMatrix Inc, on-time delivery rates for UPS ground packages based on their usual shipping transit times last week fell to 91%, compared to an on-time rate of 97% during the same week last year.
