What do you think you’ll take away from this episode?
Now let’s discuss the top six ways to boost the dimensional weight calculations to lessen the carrier back charges.
Number 1. better the way you pack the products.
Select the best-sized cartons and pack items with only the necessary material to transport the product securely.
Number 2. Use high-quality packaging materials for strength and durability and mitigate the quantity of space when calculating the DIM weight.
Number 3. Keep track of your overall monthly shipping costs.
Regularly review your shipping bills to confirm whether the dimensional weight shipping rates are appropriate.
Number 4. Automate the measurement of irregular packages and streamline the dimensioning process. Measuring irregular cubic dimensions can be time-consuming;
deploying an automated parcel dimensioning system can significantly simplify dimensional weight estimates for varied size packages.
Number 5. Figure out your measuring constraints.
Check the maximum package height and widths that the dimensioning systems you’re considering can handle if you send various items, from oversized packages to thin mailers.
And last but not least. When purchasing a dimensioner, keep maintenance and support in mind.
Is the vendor you’re working with backed up by a strong support team? Is the support crew in a time zone and location that is compatible with your operations? Think wise.
