"Delivering Profits: Inside the Package Wars":

CNBC takes you inside the mad dash to move more than 25 million packages a day. It's a revealing look at a complex system of jaw dropping automation that feeds an army of trucks on the ground and a fleet of planes in the sky. Our cameras explore the innerworkings of UPS' Worldport and the FedEx Super Hub showing how extreme automation and hi-tech logistics help two companies scan, move and push their businesses to new heights.

CNBC cameras capture the crush of an e-commerce revolution as FedEx and UPS invent ways to be faster, smarter and cheaper shipping everything from blackhawks to pandas.

Plus, CNBC takes viewers beyond packages to a new frontier where the delivery giants set their sights on even more growth with unique strategies that have the delivery guys cashing in on pharmaceuticals, smart phones and even luxury cars. CNBC's Brian Shactman reports.
