That should do the trick.
You can change the box weight in the tag code if you prefer lighter boxes.
Right now the code will split the total invoice weight into 145lb boxes and
sum the freight on each package.
The tag code also falls back and uses on-line lookup if shipping to zip
codes that are not in our internal database.

It works fairly good for us, unless your single package is more than 145lbs
.... As always, if you improve on it, please resubmit to the list :)...
