    This year they stood and delivered - Gulf News

    US logistics and retail giants managed to get holiday packages delivered on schedule

    The stretch between Black Friday and Christmas during the most recent holiday season was the shortest it’s been since 2013, a year that will live in logistics infamy after United Parcel Service Inc. failed to deliver gifts in time for their contents to become stocking-stuffers.

    So the big question this time around was: Had UPS learnt enough — or more accurately, spent enough — over the past few years to avoid similar e-commerce pileups in its network?

    And what of FedEx Corp.? The company seemed to offer up a fresh cut to its guidance every time management took to the airwaves last year and got itself banned in early December from carrying packages for third-party sellers on Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime service because of alleged poor performance.
