Of note, if using the rate charts to build weight-based shipping tables in your ecommerce cart, the calculated rate will only be as accurate as your item weight. Be sure to account for packaging weight, too. Lastly,consider potential dimensional weight for large items, as carriers will bill above actual rate for items of large size/low weight. For example, UPS calculates dimensional weight by dividing the cubic size in inches by 166. Increase any fraction to the next whole pound, and that will be the weight used for calculating freight.
