Custom Box Packing

The box packer included with this shipping method groups items into boxes that you define by height, width, length, weight and max-weight. The packing is mainly volume based but also considers item sizes.

The box packer is volume based. In most cases, this provides good results but is never as accurate as a real person packing a box (see BIN Packing Problem). Therefore, it is important to understand that packing results are as accurate as they can be, and any anomalies should be acceptable.

Setting up box sizes

Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Your Shipping Zone > Aramex Shipping Delivery > Box Packaging and select Add Box to set up box dimensions:

Box Settings
Box Settings
  • Outer dimensions are used for parcel dimensions and are passed to the API.
  • Inner dimensions are used for packing, and items should fit within these.
  • Box weight is the weight of the actual box, and is added to the weight of contents.
  • Max weight is the maximum weight your box can hold. This includes contents weight and box weight.

How the calculation works

The packer:

  1. Finds boxes that fit items being packed (uses H x W x D).
  2. Packs all fitting items into boxes (using volume).
  3. Uses the largest box that fits 100% of items *or* uses the highest % packed box, and then passes unpacked items back and repeats the process.
  4. Packs unpackable items alone, using item dimensions.
  5. Returns all packed boxes.
