Both FedEx & UPS classify long or large, but light weight packages, as "OVERSIZED" and charge more for them by both ground and air delivery. The following two charts will explain why some items are billed for shipping at a weight that is greater than the actual weight of the package.

Oversize 1 and 2 refer to packages traveling by Ground delivery:
Oversize 1

A package is considered "Oversize 1" (OS1) when all of the following conditions apply:

The package's combined length and girth exceeds 84 inches.

The package's combined length and girth is equal to or less than 108 inches.

The package's actual weight is less than 30 pounds.

For each OS1 package, the billable weight is 30 pounds.

Oversize 2

A package is considered "Oversize 2" (OS2) when all of the following conditions apply:

The package's combined length and girth exceeds 108 inches.

The package's actual weight is less than 70 pounds.

For each OS2 package, the billable weight is 70 pounds.

The following directions refer to packages Shipped by Air:
Domestic Shipments including Puerto Rico (Dimensional Weight)
UPS Next Day Air
UPS 2nd Day Air
1. Determine actual weight. - Weigh the box
2. Determine dimensional weight.

Multiply the package length by the width by the height. For each measurement, round off any fraction the nearest whole inch. The result is the cubic size. If this number is 1,728 inches or less, use the actual weight in your rate calculation. If this number is more than 1,728 inches, divide the cubic size by 194 to determine dimensional weight in pounds. Increase any fraction to the next pound.

3. Determine billable weight.

Compare each  package's actual weight to its dimensional weight. The larger of the two weights is the billable weight and should be used to calculate the rate.
