Dimensional weight is based on volume (the amount of space a package occupies). To determine if dimensional weight impacts your package, follow these steps:
- Calculate dimensional weight by multiplying length by width by height of each package (cubic size)
- Divide the cubic size by 166 (if measured in inches) or by 6,000 (if measured in centimeters). This is the dimensional weight of your package 1
- Compare this number with the actual weight of your package
Charges on your invoice will be based on the greater of the two: total actual weight versus total dimensional weight.
Please note: Domestic shipments under 1 cubic foot and/or under 1 pound are not subject to Chargeable Weight rules and are invoiced based on the actual weight.
1In accordance with standard industry practice. Chargeable weight is applicable on a per-package basis.
