Shopping cart and DHL worldwide express?

Does anyone know of any shopping cart  out there that can process shipping rates based on the company DHL Worldwide Express? If it's Javascript based or CGI based is uninportant.

Because these rates are going to fluctuate due to exchange rates, I doubt there will be a set of scripts that will do what you want.  There is an application at www.dhl.com that will process all info of an order, or there is a file at www.upss.com that will do a rate comparison.  It's not free, $199!

Thanks but i need an ecommerce online solution not a desktop solution. I guess if worst comes to worst i could set up a database based on all of the dhl current shipping rates but youre right in that international rates have to be included. There has to be a solution because the DHL website has an online calculator so they can do it. Problem is that unlike UPS Online, a shopping cart can't access this information dynamically---that I know of....thus my question.

I believe the DHL site uses their own application to process orders.  I suggest you send them an email and ask them what they are using.  But be prepared to pay for it...
The dB is an alternative solution, but the upkeep would be unbearable.

I believe that "Shopassistant" from the floyd consultancy -
http://www.floyd.co.uk/ has a DHL lookup table to resolve shipping costs.

As far as I'm aware, they post updates to these tables on their website, so you can always have the latest prices on line.

As far as the shopassistant software goes its not too bad... I've used it on a couple of sites and it does the job...

Yes shop@ssistant does have a DHL shipping table included. Interesting though, getting lot's of Javascript errors in the trial download with IE5. Should be fun trying to correct them. Thanks again though the DHL shipping table is there.

To try to correct the issues you are running into with IE5, try updating your MDAC.  I haven't looked into the SHopAssistant code but I would imagine the Jave code makes reference to a dB, we corrected ours here with an MDAC change...  Good luck!
