Hey Chris, it can definitely be challenging to ship during the hot days of summer. It is easier to ship during the winter than it is during the summer.

The weather guidelines that we use at SYR are for general use. But if you fine tune your planning, you can still get it done.

If you ship to a FedEx staffed facility, your package will arrive very early in the morning, and be kept in a room temperature environment, out of the hot weather, and out of a hot delivery truck.

That is just to a FedEx facility though, not necessarily a FedEx Office (Kinko's) or Mailbox Etc type spot.

You can find the appropriate facility address at the link below. Ship to that address, C/O your recipient, and mark it Hold for Pickup- i.e. "Billy Pickleson-Hold for Pickup"

Have the recipient pick it up as early as possible. Don't bother using a cold pack, they don't work the same, or over the same period, as a heat pack. Don't add extra ventilation, your typical 4 holes will be fine.

I WOULD STILL WAIT FOR THIS HEAT WAVE TO PASS. You don't want any kind of shipping disruption to affect your package, and when there are obvious weather issues, it is better to let them pass.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions, or need more detail.
