Dimensional Weight

While shipping parts in too small a container has its risks, so too does shipping with a box that’s too large. Almost every shipping cost now is calculated using what’s called dimensional weight. Dimensional weight takes the Length, x Width x Height and divides by a factor—normally 194 for air and 166 for ground—or the actual weight, whichever is greater.

Right Package = Lower Cost
