DIM weight charges have increased shipping costs by 30%. How can you reduce that?
In 2015, major shipping companies started 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 huge 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.
