Hi there,

I think what you’re after is an existing module that WooThemes offer for WooCommerce called “Table Rate Shipping”. Link here – http://www.woothemes.com/products/table-rate-shipping-2/

From your description it sounds like the freight company you want to use do not offer any API etc for generating shipping rates ‘on the fly’ through their system.

I won’t try to re-explain the module since they do it pretty well, below is copied from the WooThemes site.

The table rate shipping module extends WooCommerce’ default shipping options giving you highly customisable shipping options.

Define multiple shipping rates based on location, price, weight, or item count. Wildcards may be used to match multiple regions too.

Create zones for target shipping destinations
Add multiple tables of rates per zone
Several types of table rate calculation: Per order, Calculated per item, Calculated per line, Calculated per class
Add rules based on Weight, Number of items, Number of items by class and Price
Add costs per row, per item cost, a percentage and per weight unit

This is basically like uploading an excel spreadsheet of costs like you’ve previously used.
