DIM weight charges have increased shipping costs by 30%.

Major shipping companies are charging dimensional (DIM) weight pricing on all packages. Today, packages that are smaller than 3 cubic feet are subject to dimensional weight pricing. This has resulted in increased shipping costs. It is more important than ever to gain full control of your shipping process and minimize these DIM charges.

How can you avoid large dimensional weight charges?

DIM weight pricing has likely had a drastic impact on your shipping prices. Many companies use a DIM weight calculator to determine the new cost of shipping. To lessen the shipping costs under DIM charges, you need to eliminate empty space from your packaging. Packsize studies have found the average package contains about 40% wasted space. This empty space leads to pricey DIM charges.

There are other people out there trying to do this and they can’t. We have never had a day that we didn’t get all the shipments out. [Packsize] has literally never let us down … we’re looking forward to many more years of having Packsize as one of our key business partners.
