In order to deal with UPS, USPS, FedEx, or DHL carriers you need to apply the Dimensional Weight Shipping Method to your Magento 2 store.

Why does it matter?

Your products can have different sizes and shapes but you need to find a right package for each of them to save on the shipping costs. By doing so, you help a carrier optimize the usage of the cargo space and receive precise live rates for your store products. The method lets you calculate the shipping cost of a product based on the weight and package volume. Defining the dimensions of your products, packages and rules for how you pack different combinations of products together you can minimize risks and reduce shipping costs which helps you attract more customers.

How does Magento 2 Dimensional Shipping work?

Our Dimensional Shipping Weight extension for Magento 2 allows configuring Volume weight settings.

Dimensional weight or dimensional factor here is calculated as length*width*height of a product package. Relying on the dimensional factor, the extension provides a shipping factor or DIM.

The factor is later applied by a carrier to reach the most effective weight of a shipment. Put simply, the dimensional factor is an amount of space a package takes up per pound (Volumetric Weight).

When applying the Volumetric Weight attribute for a product together with a regular product attribute Weight, the Magento 2 Dimensional Shipping Weight extension will compare the two showings and choose the one with the biggest value.

How to configure Magento 2 Dimensional Shipping?

Step 1: Create a Volumetric weight attribute

To specify a volumetric weight attribute for a product, you need to create it. For this, click to add a new product attribute and define the attribute parameters. Then navigate to attribute sets and choose the categories of products to which you want to add a new attribute. After that switch to a product you need and specify the volume field for it.

Step 2: Adjust the Separate dimensions attribute calculation method

Choose Dimensional attribute in the Volume weight field. Choose a relevant attribute for the volume parameters (e.g.: Attribute 1, Attribute 2, Attribute 3) and fill in the Shipping factor.

Step 3: Configure the Dimensions attribute calculation method

Set the Dimensional attribute in the Volume weight field. Select the attribute you’ve added before. Then specify the DIM factor.

Step 4: Set up the Volume attribute calculation method

Specify the Volume attribute in the Volume weight field, then choose the Attribute you created before. To specify the DIM factor (shipping factor), consult your carrier.

Apply the Volumetric weight attribute calculation method

To make the Volumetric weight attribute enabled, set the Volume weight to Yes. Then select one of the volumetric weight attributes you’ve created earlier.

How does Magento 2 Dimensional Shipping Weight calculate the rates?

When the shipping rates are set up in the shipping methods, there are three active conditions: Country, Quantity, and Shipping Type.

Shipping rates for this group of products will be based on the next parameters:

  • the products attributes (Price, Quantity, and Weight) are summarized;
  • the system compares the result with the configured conditions and applies the rate, which matches all the requirements.
