It’s not your imagination….It’s only the end of April and your 2015 shipping costs have already gone up!


Perhaps the increase is 10% or 20% or even 50% over 2014. This would be okay if your sales were up to match the increase in spending. But more likely, you are seeing the effects of your carriers’ GRI (general rate increase) coupled with the dimensional (DIM) weight price calculations that are now used on all ground shipments carried by UPS and FedEx. Gone are the days of just grabbing the closest box and sending it out the door, size DOES matter.
