Neopost USA Launches DIM Website to Educate Businesses, Individuals About the Present Shipping Environment

The site,, includes three Dimensional Weight-themed videos, two Dim Weight reference documents and a Dimensional Weight calculator to help shippers determine the prices Federal Express®, United Parcel Service® and the United States Postal Service® will charge based on individual dimensional weight measurements.

“The 2015 holiday season will likely see the highest volume of shipments ever,” says Christopher M. O’Brien, Neopost USA’s Executive Vice President, Communication and Shipping Solutions, “and every shipper – a business or an individual – will have to adhere to the new reality of DIM Weight.

“Our new DIM Weight-dedicated website is important for shippers because it helps them prepare for the new pricing model as well as adjust operational methodologies,” O’Brien says. “Neopost USA has made it easy for shippers to calculate the best possible shipping rates and prepare to neutralize surge charges likely to be implemented during the holiday season.

“The new DIM requirements may seem confusing, but Neopost USA has provided an easy-to-use site full of useful information resources. Our site will help shippers – small business shippers in particular – find opportunities to save money. And every shipper I know wants to save money.”

DIM Weight Background
In 2014, major shipping carriers announced a dimensional (DIM) weight pricing model (a measure for establishing a minimum charge for the cubic space a package occupies) for all domestic ground shipments. In 2015, shippers are charged the greater amount between actual weight and DIM weight.
