Scale South is proud to carry the Rice Lake Weighing System's line of dimensional weighing products. This line of products is ideal for shipping and logistics industries but can be useful to any industry with a need to capture package dimensions and weights quickly and accurately.

With 5 different models in this line, dimensional weighing has never been easier to seamlessly integrate into your operating procedures. Shipping rates are constantly increasing and accurately measuring your package dimensions will help avoid added shipping fees and surcharges.

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
