I would rather drive to the shipping center to pick a package up rather than worrying all day if my package is still going to be there after sitting outside for 8 hours.
Fedex does deliver on Saturdays. It just costs $10 extra for the service.
As far as releasing packages, you can request that a signature be required but if you're not home, a door tag will be left and re-attempted the next day and then the next (Unless you go to the station and get it). If after 3x, still no delivery, it goes back to the shipper. Also some items (AT&T phones, high value items, etc) are usually "signature required".
To the original poster. What fedex service was used? Overnight? 2day? 3day? Fedex Ground? If it went Fedex Express (overnight, 2day, or 3day), PM me the tracking number. I can access their internal system and research. If it went Ground, I can't help ya.
