They’ll be huffing and puffing in the cargo area at O’Hare International Airport Saturday, as more than three dozen teams try to see which one can pull a cargo jet faster than the other.
Tis the season for shipping out holiday gifts, but how do you know if your packages are being weighed correctly? And what differences are there in shipping costs? CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker went out to get some answers.

Want a job at UPS? They are hiring again in January and February.
UPS has full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions available throughout the United States, including Chicago.
