National couriers are now using dimensional weight as a factor in determining billable weight, which could result in significant cost increases. McKesson Medical-Surgical can help you minimize the impact by implementing Patient Home Delivery. We can ship orders directly to your patients, which helps you save time and money. Check with your Account Manager to see how we can help. Other ways to minimize shipping costs:
- Use the smallest package possible to optimize your current packaging practices.
- Utilize some smaller couriers which are not implementing the dimensional weight model, which may mean they are more competitive than UPS or FedEx.
