You can't always rely on the postal services to get you your package on time. Especially during this time of year, postal services are swamped with packages and gifts that are being sent out to destinations all over the world. Even the largest companies have a hard time keeping up with the season’s rush.
Of all the package delivery companies around the world, the United Parcel Service (UPS) is the largest. Dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, the company originally operated under the name American Messenger Company. As the decades passed, the company, started by teenagers James Casey and Claude Ryan, changed names and continued to grow into the juggernaut it is today. UPS now delivers over 15 million packages a day. With December being as busy as it is, it's amazing to see just what goes into processing 416,000 packages an hour during their busiest time of year.
