How Shipping Weight is Calculated

Determine the Actual Weight
First, determine the weight of the package using a scale. Round any fraction of a pound to the next whole pound.

Determine the Dimensional Weight
Next, determine the package dimensions in inches. For each dimension, measure at the longest point, rounding each measurement to the nearest whole number (for example, 1.00 to 1.49 will be considered 1, and 1.50 to 1.99 will be considered 2). Measure the length, width and height of the package at its extreme points. If the package has a bulge or is irregularly shaped, include the bulge or irregular aspects of the package. Multiply the package length by the width by the height. The result is the cubic size in inches.

UPS Ground shipments: If the cubic size of the package in inches is 11,620 or larger, divide the cubic size by 166 to determine dimensional weight in pounds. If the cubic size in inches is less than 11,620 use the actual weight of the package.

Determine the Billable Weight
Compare the package's actual weight to the dimensional weight. The greater of the two is the billable weight and should be used to calculate the rate. For multiple package shipments, total the billable weight of all packages in the shipment.
