Six weeks ago FedEx announced what will likely be the single largest rate increase on record for many shippers. As predicted, UPS announced that they are following FedEx’s lead. Effective Monday, December 29, 2014, UPS will impose dimensional weight (DIM) pricing on all Ground packages.
To varying degrees, this change will increase transportation cost for virtually all US shippers.
Source Consulting has developed a (free) DIM Calculator to help shippers quantify this rate increase. If you have any questions, the crew at Source Consulting is here to assist and can help you determine a strategic approach to mitigate the impact of this rule change.
