8 on Your Side: Pandemic results in shipping delays; vaccine rollout will contribute to longer waits

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Millions of Americans will be waiting for gifts to arrive after Christmas this week. This is because the US Postal Service is being hit hard, shipping more packages than before.

It’s due in part to shipping caps at UPS and FedEx, as well as thousands of employees out sick.

Things aren’t expected to get better.

With vaccines rolling out nationwide, those doses get first priority on airplanes over packages.
