It is, nationally, the busiest shipping day of the year for FedEx. FedEx Express says it will handle more than 4 million packages nationwide tonight. And a lot of those packages are going through East Texas. If you still haven't shipped your grandmother's present, here are a few things to keep in mind.
"The main thing that a customer should do to ensure that their package arrives in good condition is to ensure that it is properly packaged. Use plenty of tape on the outside of the package. Make sure there's a good address and a telephone number. And take care of the contents so nothing happens to it so it gets to the recipient in good condition," Timothy Piwonka, FedEx ground operations senior manager, said.
If you're really a procrastinator, you can still use FedEx's "Priority Overnight," which delivers packages the next day.
