    UPS Projects Holiday Volume ‘Up Slightly’ From 2008 - Bloomberg

    United Parcel Service Inc. projected moving 400 million packages in the peak holiday shipping season, “up slightly” from a year earlier when it scrapped a forecast because of the recession.

    Dec. 21 will be the busiest day, with volume of 22 million shipments, Atlanta-based UPS said today. That would match UPS’s record 2007 forecast. The world’s largest package-delivery company doesn’t report results after releasing its estimates.
