According to the National Retail Federation, almost 30% of consumers plan to purchase their Mother’s Day gifts online this year. More than two million e-commerce shipments containing fresh flower bouquets, hand dipped chocolates and other Mother’s Day gifts will be delivered by FedEx to moms around the U.S. between May 6 and May 12, with large numbers of shipments being sorted in Memphis, Indianapolis, Oakland and Newark.  More than one million of these shipments will travel through the FedEx Ground network.

FedEx Express is again teaming up with ProFlowers (www.proflowers.com) and Shari’s Berries (www.berries.com) to deliver flowers and gifts on Mother’s Day itself—Sunday, May 12.  This is the fourth year that last-minute shoppers can order from special collections of fresh flowers and dipped strawberries at ProFlowers.com and Berries.com on Saturday, May 11 for delivery on Sunday, May 12.  This exclusive arrangement makes FedEx the only nationwide delivery company delivering flowers and other gifts to moms on Mother’s Day Sunday.
