Quick question about new bees

My (first ever) package of bees should be arriving next week sometime and I'm curious if I should immediately get to work putting them in the hive…. or if I should spray them with some sugar water and let them sit and relax in their shipping box for an hour.

I hope that's not a stupid question but I was thinking they might be riled up and angry from bouncing around in a delivery truck so it might be good to let them sit in a nice shady spot and rest a bit before going into their new home???

I've watched a bunch of videos about how to put them in their new hive… but they never say exactly how long ago they arrived. Like "hey, Fex Ex dropped these off 5 minutes (or an hour) ago" would be super helpful… but I've not seen that stated.
