Minimum Package Weight – This setting will restrict a carrier to only show rates if the cart is equal to or above this amount.

Maximum Package Weight – This setting will set the max weight per package as it says.

Maximum Carrier Shipment – This is the maximum weight the carrier can ship even when using multiple packages.

You can learn more about the two checkboxes by clicking here.

Show Small Package carrier for oversized carts

On the Carrier edit page you should see an option to mark on/off the “Show this Carrier even when over Freight Weight Threshold” checkbox.  Checking this on will show this carrier in the event that the cart is too heavy but keep in mind your maximum carrier shipment must still be high enough for this cart.
