New DIM Rules Will Impact Small Package Shipping

Download

Small package carriers FedEx and UPS recently announced that dimensional weight (DIM) pricing will apply to all ground shipments in 2015. This means that instead of charging by weight alone, all ground packages will now be priced according to size as well. This is a significant change from the rating structure in place today and it could ultimately mean an additional increase in your shipping costs.
As the company that manages the NTMA Shipping Program, PartnerShip® has put together a report to help you determine what this will mean for you and your business in 2015. Click here to download it.
Securing discounts for your small package shipments is one of the best ways to offset this rate increase. PartnerShip offers NTMA members discounts on select FedEx® services. If you’re not already enrolled in the NTMA Shipping Program, visit PartnerShip.com/54ntma to sign up for these exclusive discounts.
