    How UPS Plans to Deliver Your Christmas Packages On Time - Fortune

    In addition to hiring an extra 95,000 workers to help out during the holiday season, UPS has bolstered how quickly it can marshal all the transportation equipment at its disposal, including nearly 100,000 package cars, vans, tractors, and other vehicles, as well as 237 company-owned jets and another 302 chartered aircraft. The company also works with major railroads such as BNSF, CN, CSX, CP, FEC, KCS, Union Pacific, and Norfolk Southern.

    UPS has the ability to “instantaneously” change the mode of transportation it uses if bad weather shuts down a key highway or airport.
