Holiday shipping deadline approaching

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — The FedEx Ground hub in Kernersville is getting ready for the holiday shipping day they liken to Cyber Monday.

On Friday morning, FOX8 got a peek inside the busy Triad hub, where managers say Dec. 17 is the deadline to get those tightly-packed gifts in to ensure delivery by Christmas.

On Monday alone, the company expects to ship 19 million packages nationwide. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the projection is 280 million packages.
