Save shipping costs by weighing and measuring each piece in your shipment. This detailed information is invaluable in providing an accurate description of individual pieces that you may be trying to locate for any reason.
Have the dimensions and the weight permanently written on the outside of each box or carton. Freight handlers will use your figures and record that to your shipment paperwork.
Accurately weighing and measuring your shipment is important because there is a chance you could be charged much more than necessary if overestimated.
It could work against you if figures are not accurate or overestimated.
