Billable Weight

Billable weight is the weight used to calculate the rate. For domestic and international services, the billable weight will be the greater of the dimensional weight compared to the actual weight.

Determine the Actual Weight

The package weight rounded up to the next whole pound.

Determine the Dimensional Weight

Multiply the length by the width by the height (each rounded to the nearest whole inch) of each package to determine its cubic size.

Dimensional Weight = (L x W x H) ÷ 139

L = Length in inches

W = Width in inches

H = Height in inches

Dimensional weight may be applied to all services offered by UPS, whether domestic in Puerto Rico or to and from the United States and internationally.

Determine the Billable Weight

Compare the package's actual weight to the dimensional weight. The greater of the two is the billable weight and should be used to calculate the rate.

For multiple package shipments, total the billable weight of all packages in the shipment.
