LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - UPS is giving Cupid a lot of help this Valentine's Day.

 

The Worldport in Louisville expects to see more than 500,000 additional shipments from specialized Valentine's Day shippers.

Among those shipments are millions of flowers that will be delivered around the world.

A UPS employee explained, "As a company, in the days before Valentine's Day, we'll more 95 million stems of flowers. That's about seven a half million pounds, 3,000 tons. So a lot of people will be happy out there when they get their Valentine's Day flowers."

But flowers aren't the only gifts being shipped. Brown is delivering all sorts of items from chocolates to ice cream and even lobsters.
