Roadie, the same-day delivery startup that United Parcel Service Inc. acquired in October, said its package volume more than doubled in November from a year earlier as shoppers heeded the call to make holiday purchases early.

Deliveries so far in December have increased from last year, but the company declined to provide details. Roadie has added new customers including, Office Depot Inc. and Abercrombie & Fitch Co., and is delivering more large items, said Marc Gorlin, Roadie’s founder and chief executive officer.
