(WFLX) - The holiday shipping crunch will peak for UPS. The world's largest shipping carrier expects to deliver about 22 million small packages Monday.

For the entire holiday season, UPS plans to deliver roughly 400 million packages worldwide, up slightly from last year.

Rival FedEx shipped more than 14 million packages last week. That was a record.
