BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Some people in the Treasure Valley are frustrated Christmas gifts didn't get delivered on time.

UPS is trying to play catch up while FedEx calls its delays "isolated incidents."

FedEx said in a statement to KBOI 2News that some of its deliveries are late, but that it has had "no major service disruptions despite heavy volume. But that's different from what customers all over the country are reporting.

UPS admits it fell behind with a projected 132,000,000 packages to deliver. UPS drivers didn't work on Christmas, but workers in its Kentucky Hub were hard at work sorting packages on the holiday.

UPS tells KBOI 2news that winter weather in the east is to blame for delays. Most of the delayed packages were sent to that part of the country.

"There was one delay through Kentucky that kind of affected a few people throughout the Valley, but other than that, it wasn't too bad," said Mike Ray, a UPS worker in Boise.

The company expects to have most of the late packages delivered by the end of Thursday.
