The atg.commerce.pricing.PropertyRangeShippingCalculator class is a highly flexible shipping calculator that identifies an item property and adds the value provided to each item in the shipping group together to create a shipping group total. The total falls into one of the ranges specified in the ranges property, which provides a shipping cost for each range.
