Delivering   A 12.4 percent increase
The season, which includes one more day than last year, is expected to be bolstered by three volume spikes, including Cyber Monday and the first two Mondays in December, in which the company expects to move more than double its average daily volume. Peak projections are included in FedEx earnings guidance for FY16.

The National Retail Federation expects sales in November and December to grow 3.7 percent to $630.5 billion. The NRF also predicts e-commerce sales will continue to grow at a faster rate than brick-and-mortar sales, rising between 6 and 8 percent to as much as $105 billion.
