pyShipping provides connections to interface with shipping companies and to transport shipping related information.

  • package - shipping/cargo related calculations based on a unit of shipping (box, crate, package), includes a bin packing implementation in pure Python
  • sendung - defines an abstract shippment (Sendung), with packages and calculations based on that
  • addressvalidation - check if an address is valid
  • carriers.dpd - calculation of DPD/Georoutes routing data and labels. Included tables are for shippments from Wuppertal but it should work with all other german routing tables. See this Blogpost_ about updating routing information.
  • fortras - tools for reading and writing Fortras messages. Fortras is a EDI standard for logistics related information somewhat common in Germany. See Wikipedia_ for further enlightenment

It also comes with the only python based 3D Bin Packing <http://www.cs.sunysb.edu/~algorith/files/bin-packing.shtml>_ implementation I'm aware of. The Algorithm has sufficient performance to be used in everyday shipping and warehousing applications.

You can get the whole Package at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyShipping
