Welcome to Green Monday, the busiest shipping day of the year

Posted: Updated:

Green Monday is upon us. It's a day of deep online discounts that draws many Christmas shoppers to the Internet.

It's a huge day for shippers as well. FedEx says it will be their busiest of the year.

They expect to handle around 19 million packages today, which is more than double what they do on an average day. That's an increase from last year, and FedEx says its due to the increasing popularity of online Christmas shopping.

The Postal Service is expecting their usual influx of Holiday shippers, and they expect around 242 million customers to come visit their locations during the Holidays.

If you're trying to ship some holiday packages the deadline is Dec. 17 -- one week from today --- the busiest shipping day of the year.
