WebShopApps Con-way Freight

The WebShopApps Con-way Freight extension allows you to provide live shipping rates from Con-way Freight.

The Requirements

A retailer stocks some small items, which are wholesaled and ship by freight only if a weight threshold is exceeded or if they have been assigned a freight class.

The retailer needs an extension that gives him the ability to:

  • Integrate live shipping rates from Con-way with his Magento store
  • Set the minimum weight at which an item ships by freight to 150lbs, unless the product has a freight class assigned
  • Assign a default freight class of 55 for any items over 150lbs that haven't already been assigned a freight class
  • Assign different freight classes on per product basis (class 100 for phones and class 50 for desks)

The Solution

 The retailer uses the Con-way Freight extension to allow the retailer to:

  1. Enter his/her Con-way account details in the extension's configuration panel so that live shipping rates can be returned to his/her site from Con-way.
  2. Set 150lbs as the minimum weight at which an order can ship by freight in the extension's configuration panel
  3. Assign a default freight class of 55 for all items that have not been assigned a class and weigh over 150lbs
  4. Assign different classes to 'desks' and 'phones' in the product listing so that accurate freight rates can be returned
