Ordering Shipment that Arrives on Shabbat

You may not order a shipmentsuch as Fedex or other express delivery service--to arrive on Shabbat, but you may tell the shipper that it is OK with you if it is delivered Saturday night, as long as it can be delivered without violating Shabbat.  For details about newspapers and other reading material delivered on Shabbat, see Shabbat: Mail and Periodicals.
