    FedEx to add 20,000 seasonal workers, sees shipping up 13 percent - Yahoo

    FedEx Corp said on Monday it plans to hire 20,000 seasonal workers, the same as last year, to handle holiday shipping volume that it expects will be up more than 13 percent.

    An ongoing increase in e-commerce and last-minute orders amid a slow-growing economy will mean more deliveries for companies like FedEx that can handle fast shipments.

    Retailers are keeping inventory fairly lean, so a jump in orders beyond expectations could boost demand for the quick deliveries that FedEx and United Parcel Service provide.
