This setting ensures that all packages for this carrier are equal or greater than the stated value by raising the package weight to meet this threshold.

Show Small Package carrier for oversized carts

On the Carrier edit page navigate to Optional tab in which you could tick “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.
