None of our packages get DIM'ed via UPS or FedEx ground service, AFAIK.
But I could be wrong. Check local listings.

I said more complicated because it was easiest to explain. We have a lot
of considerations because we have some hazmat items, which can be
shipped via some services to some places and not to others. So we have a
complicated four-table lookup, and now the weight is calculated as part
of the larger shipping cost calculation system.

As Kevin pointed out, I only intended the script as an example.
