UPS Ground Moves to Dimensional Weight Pricing

Starting on December 29, 2014, UPS will begin to charge all U.S. ground shipments based on package size using dimensional weight pricing. The switch follows a general industry trend with FedEx recently also announced similar changes in response to rising fuel costs.

According to UPS, "the company believes that as a result of the dimensional weight pricing method, more shippers will seek to optimize their packaging practices. These efforts will reduce excess packaging materials and overall package sizes, leading to related reductions in fuel use, vehicle emissions and transportation costs."
