What is Dimensional Weighing?
Dimensional weighing is the shift in the shipping industry by determining shipping prices based on a package’s volume as well as weight, and charge for whichever is greater.
Why has dimensional weighing become such a key focus? A carrier’s truck is often filled due to space restrictions much sooner than it reaches its weight capacity, such as over-using packing materials, which creates empty space in boxes.
Dimensional weighing is not focused on increasing prices for shippers
By shipping smarter, you can adapt to dimensional weighing easier
Remember, with dimensional weighing, it is all about volume
