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 that are less than one (1) pound in weight or have a volume of less than or equal to one (1) cubic foot 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.
