develop api for magento to process shipping with dimensions to receive volumetric weight Quote

to design an api and install onto my magento store, this api will connect with parcels2go and request a quotation based on volumetric weight and to add a mark up % on quotes received.

This Api will need to be installed and sent as a backup with installation instructions.

Also to Back up my other Custom Api together with instructions on how to install etc.

Regards

Dave

"Weight Calculation

Dimensional weight is a calculation of a theoretical weight of a package. This theoretical weight is the weight of the package at a minimum density chosen by the freight carrier. If the package is below this minimum density, then the actual weight is irrelevant as the freight carrier will charge for the volume of the package as if it were of the chosen density (what the package would weigh at the minimum density). Furthermore, the volume used to calculate the Dimensional Weight may not be absolutely representative of the true volume of the package. The freight carrier will measure the longest dimension in each of the three axis (X,Y,Z) and use these measurements to determine the package volume. If the package is a right-angled rectangular cuboid (box), then this will be equal to the true volume of the package. However, if the package is of any other shape, then the calculation of volume will be more than the true volume of the package.

Dimensional weight is also known as DIM Weight, volumetric weight, Cubed Weight, etc. Freight carriers utilize the greater of the actual weight or dimensional weight to calculate shipping charges. Dimensional Weight is calculated as (Length x Width x Height) / (Dimensional Factor). Measurements can be made all in inches or all in centimeters, but the appropriate shipping factor must also be used.

Shipping factors for imperial measurements represent cubic inches per pound (in3/lb) while metric factors represent cubic centimeters per kilogram (cm3/kg). These are the inverse of the package density. Dimensional Weight is applied when the actual product density is less than the minimum density represented by the chosen factor. Dimensional Weight is representative of the weight of the package at the minimum density accepted by the freight carrier.[1] Shipping factors are not only different for imperial and metric measurements, but also for shipment mode and in some cases between different customers. Shipping factors will be available from your freight carrier. Some common factors are listed below.

Imperial Shipping Factor examples:

166 in3/lb = 10.4 lb/ft3 - common for IATA shipments
194 in3/lb = 8.9 lb/ft3 - common for domestic shipments
216 in3/lb = 8.0 lb/ft3
225 in3/lb = 7.7 lb/ft3
250 in3/lb = 6.9 lb/ft3
Metric Shipping Factor examples:

5000 cm3/kg = 200 kg/m3
6000 cm3/kg = 166.667 kg/m3
7000 cm3/kg = 142.857 kg/m3
When calculating the dimensional weight with metric measurements, the Length, Width, and Height are measured in centimeters (cm) and the result is stated in a nominal kilogram (kg) dimensional weight band (usually rounded up).

Some Calculations for Major Courier/Shipping Companies are as follows:

DHL: (L cm x W cm x H cm)/5000[2] or 4000[3] depending on certain import/country criteria
FedEx: (L cm x W cm x H cm)/6000 (new) or /5000 (old, still used in Asia) for international shipments, (L cm x W cm x H cm)/7000 for domestic shipments
UPS: (L cm x W cm x H cm)/6000 or /5000 depending on certain import/country criteria
Canada Post (L cm x W cm x H cm)/6000 or (L in x W in x H in)/166[4]
(See external links for the DHL, FedEx, and UPS dimensional weight calculators)

Examples

Using dimensional weight calculations, a freight carrier will charge for lightweight (low density) packages as if they had a greater weight (the weight of the package at the minimum accepted density).

For example, a box of clothing shipped internationally which weighs 10 pounds, and measures 18 x 18 x 18 inches, would be charged as if it weighed 36 pounds: (18 x 18 x 1
