TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

UPS and FedEx called in extra drivers today and even renting U-Haul trucks to deliver packages that didn't get delivered on time for Christmas.

The companies are blaming bad weather and last minute online shopping for the late deliveries.

Some online retailers, including, are offering gift cards and refunds on shipping fees for items that didn't make it on time.

UPS officials told Bloomberg Businessweek the company expected to ship more than 132 million items the week before Christmas.
