Answer:

Both spaces should be filled with whoever.

Explanation:

From four given words "who" and "whom" are only used in questions.

Who is used to form questions about subject like for example: "Who received the package?"

Whom is used to form questions about object like for example:

Whom are you going to send the package?.

Since the given sentence is not a question you have to use whoever or whomever, but as with who and whom it depends on the part of sentence to which whoever/whomever applies. In this sentence both missing parts are subjects, so the correct answer is:

"Whoever receives the package should send it to whoever actually ordered it."
