Lots of problems that I see, first off, $Items is an array reference, 
and does not contain an integer that you can just multiply by, secondly 
you have to set the mv_handling value to a true value for handling to 
work, and thirdly that code is crap, try ...

	$Values->{mv_handling} = 1;

	my $handling = scalar @$Items * 5;
	$handling = 20 if $handling < 20;

	$Tag->assign({ handling => $handling });



Actually Peter, this gives me only $20 for handling no matter how many items
there are in the cart.  It should be $5 per item up to $20.

I will keep looking and working on this.
