Thousands of Products from Distributor Upload Attributes

I list 15,000 products on my website. My distributor give me a simple excel spreadsheet that I run a macro script to adjust the categories, images, and all other column so it can easily upload to my store. But one issue I always have been avoiding is that there are multiple attributes for the same product What I have been doing is normally uploading all the different attributes as a separate product, but this leads to the customer having a hard time locating the correct color or correct size. For example, if I sell a dog crate

Crate comes in multiple sizes
18 inch
23 inch
30 inch
42 inch
Fish filter
100 series 59.99
200 series 79.99
300 series 89.99
etc all different sku number, prices and weights. They have them on the spreadsheet but they are in each of their own rows. Are there any solutions out there for this? I am sure the major chain stores don’t have people listing one product at a time and adding the attributes. There has to be a simpler solution.
