Submission + - Holiday shipping statistics

Meostro writes: It may seem that your house has become a shipping hub for the past few days, with holiday goodies being delivered daily or even several times a day. However, what you see is infinitesimal versus the actual volume of stuff that goes through the major shipping and logistics networks daily. UPS, FedEx and DHL all have holiday statistics available, and they're impressive.

For example, the FedEx website will see double their average number of tracking requests, at nearly 6 million per day during the month of December. UPS will deliver about 243 packages every second (for a full 24 hours) on their peak day, December 20th.
