What is DWP?
Shipping costs have historically been calculated on the basis of gross weight in kilograms. The concept of Dimensional Weight Price (DWP) has been adopted by the transportation industry worldwide as a uniform means of establishing a minimum charge for the cubic space a package occupies.
With DWP, the shipping cost is calculated considering the volume of the package and not its weight.
This change, that may seem small, will have major implications in the way companies operating across Europe pack and ship their goods.
