FedEx and UPS and Dimensional Weight Pricing

FedEx and UPS have updated their billing methods for their Ground services (and UPS Standard to Canada Packages). A shipment's billable shipping cost is now calculated based on dimensional weight, if that value is higher than the actual weight.

To ensure you are receiving accurate shipping quotes on these services from FedEx and UPS, we recommend that you enter a package's total weight and package dimensions. This way, ShipStation's quotes should be just as good as the ones that UPS and FedEx provide while logged into their websites.

If you're ready to enter dimensions into ShipStation, but you're unsure of the best way to go about it, this support article will help you take the next step!
