(Update: Infographic below of how Santa gets the presents under the tree in time for Christmas morning)
On Christmas Eve the final push is being made all over the United States (and the world) to get presents under the tree in time for Friday morning when the kids wake-up!
This week on Tuesday alone, UPS estimated that it delivered 36 million packages, double its normal volume!
And whether this statistic is anecdotal evidence of a strong selling season or is merely a swap of brick and mortar sales to online sales will be known soon after the holiday ends.
But, if you happen to be shipping any of your packages and presents with United Parcel Service better known as UPS, chances are that they will travel through the company’s Worldport facility in Louisville, Kentucky…
And if they do, the video below is what the scene might look like!
