UPS zone shipping by weight

My client needs to set pricing for shipping based on UPS zones.. I believe there are 5 of them.  The pricing will change based on weight groups and will be different pricing per zone and per weight.

Is this currently possible with Magento?  I’ve found a plugin for multiple table rate shipping which potentially solves this problem, but we need to enter in a large about of information into CSV.  Seems there should a way to have this auto calculated based on a few parameters.

If anyone has an answer, that would be appreciated!!

This feature is not currently supported in Magento (1.2.x) but can be achieved with customization.

I’ve got the same issue.  Clients within this zone have to use ground or 2nd day, and anyone outside of that zone has to use 2nd day.  And the shipping rates are based on weight.  I tried to convince the customer to just use a flat rate per zone, but he wants the exact rate that UPS would normally give.  He can’t figure out why this is such an issue, his paypal site handled this just fine.... smile

Any ways around this?

As Adi stated, we need to create a plugin to achieve this since its not part of the standard functionality.  I’ll be creating this over the weekend for my client.  However, the likely hood of me creating a re-usable plugin might be slim (as time is not on my side) :( .
