Dimensional Weight Shipping
The Bigger the Box, the Higher the Cost
The UPS and FedEx use dimensional (DIM) weight pricing for all packages. This can have substantial ramifications for shippers in terms of costs and business processes.
What is DIM Weight?
Dimensional weight involves factoring the box size into pricing. If the dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight, the shipping rate is based on the dimensional weight instead. Essentially, the bigger the box, the higher the cost.
