Holiday hiring is ramping up.
UPS will hire about 50,000 temporary workers to handle the crush of holiday shipments this year, AP reports.
United Parcel Service said it expects to deliver 430 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The busiest day should be Wednesday, Dec. 22, when UPS expects to deliver 24 million packages worldwide, up nearly 60 percent from a normal day, AP writes.
Rival FedEx says it expects to move nearly 16 million packages on its peak day, Dec. 13.
