Wednesday night is the busiest shipping night UPS will have all year. Many of us have procrastinated and just put our Christmas packages in the mail. So UPS will send out almost double the amount of its normal packages these next couple days.
It's expected the brown delivery trucks will carry about 100 million packages this week. But before they can be delivered they have to be organized.
Once we drop off our gifts they are taken to the mass sorting center. From there they either go to a semi-truck, or are loaded up into a plane.
In Rockford UPS hires an extra 300 employees. They also bring in more planes. On Wednesday night there were 32 jets at the airport. Normally there is 21.
