    How to ship to hub? and temp question

    I'm FedEx certified but I've never had to ship to a local hub to be held for pick-up. How do I do this? Is there an option during the shipment label creation process that I need to check?

    Also, I have a temp question...gotta send a big normal girl out to Cali....Wants it shipped Mon night for Tues morn delivery to the FedEx Hub so he can pick it up

    His high temps for monday is 86 and the low is 61. His high temps for tues is 93 and low is 63

    My temps here for monday are high 78, low 68 and tues is high 78 and low is 63

    Is 93 too high? would I need a cold pack or just no heat pack or cold pack at all?

    What I'm thinking is that since I drop it off at a hub and it's being delivered to a hub that only the lows matter and I should use a heat pack, is this right? It's going to be a 11x15x7 box so if heat pack is needed, is 1 sufficient?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    The temps aren't too low, 1 heat pack should be sufficient, when online with fedex, I believe there is an option box to keep at hub.
    Check out what's available at

    Yes there is a simply option in the prepare a shipment area of the Fed-ex shipping site that says "Hold at local fed-ex location for pick up". As for temps no they seem fine and if they are delivered by 12:00pm then I wouldn't pack even with a warmer..as they might over heat..

    Well I think I might go with the heat pack as he wants to pick it up as soon as it is delivered there and available for pick up...I'm shipping priority overnight by 10:30am

    I would not ship with a heat pack in these temps, there is no need for it, and it could very well cause an overheat.
