“FedEx has had our busiest holiday season in history,” said T. Michael Glenn,
executive vice president of Market Development at FedEx. “With this final
push, our team members across the U.S. and worldwide are literally delivering
the holidays for millions.”

To ensure last-minute holiday shipments get into the FedEx Express network in
time for delivery before Christmas, FedEx encourages customers to visit
fedex.com and find the closest FedEx Office Print & Ship Center or FedEx World
Service Center location. The fedex.com location finder or customer service
representatives at 1-800-Go-FedEx (1-800-463-3339) can also provide FedEx
Express package drop-off cut-off times, so procrastinators know exactly when
they need to have their packages ready to ship.

With more than 1,800 convenient locations nationwide, FedEx Office can help
last-minute holiday shippers make the deadlines with minimal stress. The range
of full-service packing services offered by the stores’ specially-trained team
members starts at just $4.99, adding greater confidence that those
perfectly-picked gifts will also arrive in perfect condition.

For those who truly left the holiday checklist to the very last moment, FedEx
offers FedEx SameDay with pickup and delivery seven days a week, 365 days a
year for packages weighing less than 150 lbs. FedEx SameDay City is also
available in 20 U.S. cities offering lower rates than the national service and
no weight limitations. In five of those markets (Dallas, Denver, Washington
