Shipping in eCommerce is a puzzle, especially when dealing with big, bulky, or oddly shaped items. Traditional shipping methods often fail to provide accurate shipping rates for these unique items, causing headaches for merchants and customers alike.

In this blog, we will dive into ShipperHQ’s advanced Dimensional Packing feature, which enables merchants to get shipping rates that reflect how they actually ship their products.

The Role of Dimensional Weight

Understanding dimensional weight is pivotal in eCommerce shipping. It’s a method used by carriers to price shipments based on volume rather than just the dead weight of the product. 

This concept is crucial for items that are large but lightweight, as they consume more space in a carrier’s vehicle than their weight would suggest. In addition, getting this wrong can be costly for merchants.
