UPS is looking for more workers in Florida.

The company says it will be hiring 55,000 seasonal workers across the U.S. to help with an increase in volume over the holiday season. The world's biggest package delivery company said Friday that it foresees peak season daily volume rising 8 percent this year.

The company said that there are 26 shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, six fewer than last year and it's the most compressed holiday shopping season since 2002.
