Ok, so the customer can order the product in either 1/2 lb or 1lb this is the break down for ice requirements:
1-2 lbs = 2 ice
3 lbs = 3 ice
4-9 lbs = 4 ice
9-15 lbs = 6 ice
15-25 lbs = 8 ice
25 lbs ++ = 12 ice
each bag of ice is $0.50
For next day ground they ship in a cardboard box up to 10 lbs and requires 2 ice so that is only 8 lbs of product if it is a 2-3 day shipment they are using a Styrofoam box:
STYROFOAM Boxes (for 2nd Day GROUND or AIR)
SMALL $10 4 ice weighs 1 lb. will hold 5 lbs Product
MED $12 8 ice weighs 1.5 lbs. will hold up to 12 lbs
LARGE $15 10 ice weighs 2 lbs. will hold up to 20 lbs

The price is for the ice and container.

The problem I am running into is that just because one product is ordered that may not change the container until 3 or 4 products are ordered and how they want it shipped. I guess what I need is a way to have the shipping options decide the container that needs to be used (based on total weight of product ordered and shipping time frame). I do not know if this can be accomplished or if I am just not setting up the program with the correct variables.

Thanks for any help,
