As a result of changes in our industry, FedEx and UPS will be adjusting the way in which they calculate domestic USA volumetric / dimensional weight.

Please be advised that as of January 01, 2017, the volumetric / dimensional weight for domestic shipments is being raised from 166 to 139. 

This means that, going forward, the equation for calculating volumetric / dimensional weight is as follows:

Volumetric / Dimensional Weight <inches> = (Length x Width x Height) / 139

 IBC will be implementing and programming our system to reflect this change.

Thank you for your understanding continued support.
