Package Weight Maximums
Posted by Doug Sherman (Import), Last modified by on 08 Dec 09 02:18 PM
The shipping calculator when determining rates for two or more items that are to be shipped together can split the shipment into multiple packages. By default the calculator place as many items as possible into a single package while respecting the carrier maximum weight limit. When multiple items combined exceed the maximum weight, the calculator automatically creates additional packages.

You can control the packaging logic by specifying a weight lower than the carrier's maximum weight which may better reflect your shipping pratices.

Any item that exceeds your specified packaging weight limit will automatically be placed in it own package and rated for the carrier as long as it does not exceed the carrier's maximum weight limit.
