MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Business Wire) -- Procrastinators, take note—the last day to ship holiday packages via FedEx Express for delivery before Christmas in the United States is Monday, Dec. 23.

For added convenience, FedEx Express station counters will offer extended hours. They will also be open Sunday, Dec. 22, to better accommodate customers' holiday shipping needs, allowing them more time to pick up an important package being held at a local facility.
