On Jan. 5, 2015, FedEx Ground began applying dimensional weight pricing to ALL shipments. Previously, FedEx Ground applied dimensional weight pricing only to packages measuring three cubic feet or greater.
Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying the length by width by height of each
package in inches and dividing the total by 166 (for all shipments within the U.S. and
FedEx Express shipments between the U.S. and Puerto Rico) or 139 (for all U.S. export and
U.S. import-rated international shipments). If the dimensional weight exceeds the actual
weight, charges may be assessed based on the dimensional weight. If the chargeable
weight of a FedEx Ground package exceeds 150 lbs., a prorated per-pound rate will be used.
Dimensions of one-half inch or greater are rounded up to the next whole number; dimensions
less than one-half inch are rounded down. The final calculation is rounded up to the next
Dimensional weight applies per package or per shipment to all FedEx Express U.S.
shipments in customer packaging, and per shipment to all FedEx Express international
shipments and U.S.-to-Puerto Rico shipments in customer packaging. Shipments in
FedEx packaging may be subject to dimensional-weight pricing. FedEx Ground applies
dimensional weight to all shipments.
