Transporting Packages

I’m getting my first new packages next week. It’s about an hour away and I’ll be driving my pickup (with a bed cover). Should I cover the Packages with anything to keep the bees warm on the ride home? Put them in a box... just put them in the bed? Thanks

I carried a package in the backseat of my SUV once. Only had a few loose bees for the 45 min ride home. The laundry bag is a good idea. Buy a few at wally world for about $3 each. I have used them too and they work great on my small swarm traps.
