What You Will Learn

Uncontrolled packing practices may be costing you a fortune. eCommerce is driving demand for parcel and LTL capacity to an all time high. Poorly packed containers filled with air is preventing them from "cubing out" their vehicles with maximum weight. They are fighting back with expanded dimensional (DIM) weight pricing policies. Without a controlled methodology for proper carton selection during the packing process, taking into account carrier costs, you may be paying a lot more for transportation than you think.
 

Key Takeaways

Attendees will gain valuable insights on the five tips that will help you reduce unexpected DIM fees:
1 – Avoid packing in cartons that are too large
2 – Avoid packing in cartons that are too small (over compensation)
3 – Rate shop carrier DIM fees
4 – Negotiate DIM divisors
5 – Use cartonization technology to take the guess work out of packing and palletization
