ShippingCalc

DESCRIPTION:

Shipping Calculator written in Ruby to get quick quotes from DHL, UPS and Freight Carriers. We hope to support FedEx in the near future.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Current version does not support FedEx

SYNOPSIS:

You can find an example of each carrier's API under the /examples directory.

A simple DHL example:

require 'rubygems'
require 'shipping_calc'

include ShippingCalc

opts = {
  :api_user => "your_user", 
  :api_password => "your_pwd",
  :shipping_key => "your_key",
  :account_num => "your_accnt",
  :date => Time.now, 
  :service_code => "E", # check the DHL docs to find out what this means
  :shipment_code => "P", # check the DHL docs to find out what this means
  :weight => 34, # weight in lbs
  :to_zip => 10001,
  :to_state => "NY"
}

d = DHL.new
q = d.quote(opts)
puts q

REQUIREMENTS:

INSTALL:

  • sudo gem install shipping-calc

TEST:

To run the DHL tests you'll need to have a .dhl_info.yml file in your home directory with your auth info like this: ~/.dhl_info.yml

api_user: your_user
api_password: your_password
shipping_key: your_key
account_num: your_accnt_num

To run the UPS tests, you will need a similar setup, with a .ups_info.yml in your home directory with info like this: ~/.ups_info.yml

api_user: your_user
api_password: your_password
shipping_key: your_key

This is necessary only for the tests. When using the library, you can pass this information in to the UPS/DHL/Freight classes in any fashion you like.
