United Parcel Service Overcharged by UPS Griffin, Georgia
Thank you for your e-mail. Our records indicate that the total charge for tracking number K1943432429 is $64.50, including $42. [continued below]....
The package was recorded with an actual weight of 19.0 pounds. However, it should have been charged at the 39.5 pound rate due to its dimensions.
The billable weight is based on either the actual package weight or the Dimensional Weight, whichever is greater. Dimensional Weight applies to both Air and Ground shipments. Please note that for UPS Ground shipments, Dimensional Weight rates only apply to packages that are equal to or larger than three cubic feet (5,184 cubic inches). Ground packages that measure less than three cubic feet are billed at their actual weight.
To prevent these charges in the future, enter the package weight and dimensions (length, width, and height in inches) into your UPS shipping system when you first process the shipment. The correct rate will calculate automatically.
