Mail/Package on Shabbat

Can one open a package that was delivered on Shabbat? Do the contents matter?

Many variables that can impact the Halachah.

The contents definitely matter. Opening a magazine or newspaper would be forbidden. Anything you canโ€™t use on shabbat would be a problem.

When it was delivered matters. Where is was at the start of Shabbat. Was it in the techum?

To be able to answer your question you will need to provide more details about your specific scenario.

Another heter soukd be the driver is not specifically doing it for you but rather for the company?

Because the package gets the techum of the place it was when Shabbos began

True , however the question was that it should not be considered ื”ื‘ื ื‘ืฉื‘ื™ืœ ื™ืฉืจืืœ

its not important how it got there. The deciding factor is where it was when shabbos started.
