Most e-commerce sites that sell physical goods that may be dispatched to many different places, usually have solve the problem of calculating the shipping costs, so the clients may know how much the products will cost before closing a sale.

The problem is that shipping costs may vary according to many factors like the origin and destination of the shipping, weight of the packaged products, size of the packages, etc..

This class provides a solution for calculating the cost of shipping products in Brazil either by using information obtained from locally stored files or connecting to local post office company site.

While this is a country specific solution it may serve as base of inspiration for solutions specific to other countries.
