The recent news that FedEx plans to change how their shipping rates are calculated could have a significant impact on e-commerce businesses and their customers. The announcement indicates that FedEx will begin using package dimensions, instead of weight, to calculate shipping charges. Analysts expect UPS may soon implement similar changes.
We at Custom Boxes Now believe this is a great opportunity for e-commerce businesses to re-evaluate their e-commerce shipping boxes. Using boxes that are built to perfectly fit products will not only save costs for unnecessary filler packaging, but could also minimize the cost with these upcoming changes by shippers such as FedEx.
