Have you noticed a difference on your shipping invoices since the beginning of the year? Small package carriers FedEx and UPS are now applying dimensional (DIM) weight pricing to all packages. This is a significant change from last year, when only packages measuring at least three cubic feet were subject to dimensional weight pricing. If you’re still confused about how to calculate DIM weight or what you can do to keep your costs down, PartnerShip can help. Check out these resources below.

shipment. Best of all, this load board is completely free to view at anytime - no logging in or information is needed to view the available loads.
