Despite a challenging 2014, FedEx is anticipating strong growth in the new year.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivered about 524 million packages in December, which shows an increase of 18 percent when compared with last year's holiday results.
Instacart, a San Francisco-based grocery delivery startup, raised almost $210 million in a recent funding round.
Amazon announced that its customers saved about $2 billion on shipping costs this holiday season, thanks to its Prime two-day shipping program as well as its free shipping offer for orders over $35.
Beginning in January, both UPS and FedEx will be changing their pricing structure, effectively raising their prices for many.
