Default UPS to Factor Box Size Into Pricing

I just read this, this morning. I dont use UPS, too expensive for me but I'm sure some of us here do.

It might mean more expensive shipping rates on large bulky items.

Their new pricing ways starts in Dec.

To my understanding, they only do it with express, not ground. With this change, they will now do it with "ground" also. Fedex does with it with all shipping methods.

Varies, usually for small items under 5lbs USPS is the way to go. Getting more bulky items that are in bigger boxes like mentioned above. USPS/FedEx has been much more cost effective. For me I rarely ship eBay order UPS/FedEx. However, I sell lots of overstock items to other sellers. Also have to pay Ground shipping from suppliers in the states. UPS/FedEx Ground is much cheaper for those larger packages. There are some factors that go into UPS/FedEx pricing that can kill it if you are in rural areas, etc.
