Distance Equals Money: Understanding U.S. Shipping Zones
Posted by Jake Rheude on 02 August 2021 10:00 AM

Shipping charges tend to rise as your packages go further, and carriers determine how much your price scales by seeing how far you ship across their U.S. shipping zones. Carriers each carve up the continental map to create their list, with most dividing up the country into seven shipping zones numbered “2” through “8.” These shipping zones can impact both the cost and delivery speeds available for your goods.

Knowing U.S. shipping zones and how they’re calculated can help an eCommerce business understand and predict costs. It should also inform your fulfillment strategy concerning partners, locations, and more. You might even be able to use shipping zones to your advantage.
