Use the UPS shipping rate calculator, known as the Calculate Time and Cost application, by entering the origin and destination of the package or freight along with the shipping date. Choose from the available shipping methods, then select additional features and enter the weight and size of the shipment to receive the final cost.
Rather than present a set table of shipment costs, UPS offers an interactive tool that allows you to determine the exact price of a shipment according to its unique size and weight, which are the two biggest factors contributing to cost. To use the tool, click on the Shipping tab from any page on the site and select the Calculate Time and Cost link. On the following page, enter the city and ZIP code for the origin and destination of the package, as well as specifying whether either address is a residential address. Select the date on which you plan to ship the package and click Update to access the specific shipment methods.
Next, choose the packaging type from the drop-down list and enter the exact dimensions and weight of the package. If you have multiple packages, choose the number from the menu to enter the details for each package. Finally, choose the shipping speed and click Update again to calculate the cost of the shipment.
