You can set those alerts when you schedule the shipping from the website.

As for knowing exactly when the package gets picked up, it all depends on the FedEx person. If he scans it immediately then of course you will get an accurate time, if not then you won't see an update till he gets back to the hub at night.

Thanks Edward.  Does the package tracking API contain a status that would indicate whether the package was picked up?

Yes it does. I was checking one of my package statuses and it has picked up.
