    Dim weight may currently only apply for ground packages that are basically 17x17x17 or larger(length, width, height combined of 51 inches or more if dim weight is more than actual). The move that FedEx is making in 2015 could basically dim any ground shipment that has dim weight more than actual. Boxes as small #$%$ 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 could dim out. This could affect a large portion of their current ground shipments! If UPS does not follow this, it could lead to a large influx of volume next year!

    Sentiment: Hold
