UPS and Others Already Falling Behind

If you've still got holiday shopping to do, you might want to hit the mall rather than order online. The Washington Post reports  delayed deliveries have become a challenge this holiday season. Last  week, UPS warned that some deliveries could be delayed by a day or two  as employees worked extra hours to deal with an influx of holiday  orders. UPS is the world's largest delivery company. 

Pilots for DHL and  Amazon Prime Air, however, also say they're dealing with delays. On  Monday, UPS said last week's late deliveries had been resolved "after  the initial cyber week surge." Nevertheless, some retailers are  encouraging customers to buy online and pick up in the store.
