7. What is dimensional Weight?
Dimensional weight reflects the amount of space a package occupies in relation to its actual weight. Think about the available space in a truck or plane – if your package is taking up a bit more space than the actual weight the package captures, you will pay for that space. Often referred to as “Dim weight”, pricing is based on volume versus actual weight of shipments. It is calculated by determining the cubic size of a package — multiplying its length by width by height and dividing by 139. Example 25X6X43/139 = 46.40 Pounds. You will then be charged for 47 Pounds.
