Shipping companies expect a busy holiday season to be even busier this year.

Companies like FedEx and UPS say the increase in online orders due to the pandemic will make the holiday shipping season more crowded.

Despite adding tens of thousands of seasonal employees, companies say there is only so much space to ship packages.

Experts say companies may try to cash in on a busy shipping season by charging even higher fees for packages sent closer to Christmas.

They adds the best advice is to mail packages by December 1st to make sure they get there on time.
