Rates consist of two key components:
1) Actual weight of the product
2) Dimensional weight of the product, which considers the package size.
3) Maximum physical weight per piece must not exceed 75 pounds (Ground & Select shipments)
4) Maximum physical weight per piece must not exceed 70 pounds (US)
If the actual weight of a package is less than the actual size (eg. A box of filled balloons), the dimensional weight is used in calculating the price. When calculating the “dimensional weight”, Canpar uses a minimum of 10 pounds per cubic foot (160 kilograms per cubic metre) for our Ground Service and 15 pounds per cubic foot (240 kilograms per cubic metre) for our Select Service.
