UPS now calculates shipping costs based on the size of the package shipped using ground delivery. This is known as Dimensional Weight Pricing, also referred to as “DIM Weight.”
DIM Weight reflects the density of the package, which is the amount of space a package occupies in relation to its actual weight. Space is important for shipping carriers since they want to keep costs low by filling their trucks with as many packages as possible. DIM Weight pricing is cost-effective for shipping carriers since they charge by volume weight rather than actual weight.
Below demonstrates how to calculate DIM Weight. For more information, visit calumetcarton.com
