MEMPHIS (WKZO) -- FedEx expects to be busier than ever this holiday season
The Memphis-based delivery company is forecasting a 13-percent increase in shipments. That would be a record 280-million packages, mainly because of a jump in online spending.
FedEx plans to hire 20-thousand seasonal workers to help with the holiday workload. That's about the same number it hired last year to beef up its 300-thousand member permanent workforce worldwide.
