What is DIM?

DIM, or dimensional weight, is based on the measurements of a package:
(L x W x H) / DIM divisor

The DIM divisor for 2021 is 139. When you send a package, your carrier will electronically scan it to determine its dimensions and calculate the DIM weight, rounding up to the next pound. If the DIM weight is higher than its actual weight, you’ll pay based on the DIM weight. This makes it absolutely vital to choose the right packaging.
