Thus, when the above dimensions of the box matches the dimensions of the selected product in the frontend, custom delivery settings will be enabled.
Please also note that the services which are enabled will appear in the dropdown list under Order Delivery Date > Delivery Schedule > Add new custom delivery schedule > Shipping Methods. The ones which are not enabled will not be displayed.

2. Add settings for the selected 3 Day Select (UPS) option
After selecting the shipping method, you can add delivery date & time settings for it. They’ll appear like this:

This tells us that the delivery will take place only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays as per the settings added. This will reflect on the frontend Checkout page when UPS Shipping Method condition is met.
3. Frontend Display
When the customer selects an item in the shopping cart, UPS Shipping Methods will appear on the Cart page. This is because, the dimensions set in the backend for the selected product Packed Meal met the condition for UPS Shipping Method as shown below:

When customer selects 3 Day Select (UPS) option on the Cart page, the Total shows additional charge of $77.05 added to the product price as shown below:
