Yes! Ordoro offers dimensional weight rates through our UPS®: Discounted Rates accounts. These rates benefit you most when you pack small. Think the smaller and heavier the package, the more you save!
What is dimensional weight?
A “weight equivalent” for your goods is calculated using the actual weight and the volume of your shipment. The method used to calculate volumetric weight varies by mode of transportation or trade lane.
Carriers use dimensional weight (also called DIM weight) to help manage the balance between size and weight, which is necessary to consider when filling shipping containers.
The cost of a shipment is determined based on the actual weight or the dimensional weight, whichever is greater.
