Dimensional weight (DIM weight) is the weight of a package based on its size rather than its actual weight. UPS, FedEx and USPS (Priority Mail) all use DIM weight to determine the billable weight for shipping a package, so it's important to know to make sure you're getting the best rate. This is especially relevant for shipping larger, lightweight packages.
Use the calculator below to find the DIM weight of a package for UPS, FedEx and USPS shipments.
*Compare the DIM weight to the actual package weight. Use the larger of the two numbers to determine the shipping cost. Always round up.
