When Thanksgiving ends, the busiest time of year starts for UPS workers, in fact, this is their peak season. UPS has been planning, hiring and adding capacity since January.

With all those supply chain shortages you’ve heard about, their best advice is to ship as soon as possible.

“UPS is ready to deliver,” UPS Enterprise Sales President Nakeya Shelton proclaims, “Once that package gets in our hands, you can be assured that we’re gonna deliver it on time, every time.”

With Christmas less than 30 days away create a plan to make sure your shipped gifts are present — Christmas morning. Shopping tips from UPS: take advantage of early sales, buy while there’s still inventory, wrap then pack pronto, and know the shipping deadlines.
