DIM charges have increased shipping costs by 30%. How can you reduce that?
In 2015, major shipping companies started charging dimensional weight pricing on all packages. Now packages smaller than 3 cubic feet are subject to dimensional weight pricing (also known as DIM charges or DIM pricing), resulting in increased shipping costs. It is more important than ever to gain full control of your shipping process and minimize these charges.
How Can You Avoid Huge Dimensional Weight Charges?
Dimensional weight pricing has likely had a drastic impact on your shipping prices. To lessen your shipping costs under DIM pricing, you need to eliminate empty space from your packaging. Packsize studies have found the average package contains about 40% wasted space. This empty space leads to pricey DIM charges.
