Most of the products we sell only fit one item per package a few will fit more than one per package. How can we setup Magento for multiple package shipments for one order?

On our last order the customer ordered three of the same product, each product is 18 lb the UPS quote was for one 54 lb package $58.06. When we shipped, the shipment was three 18 lb packages with a total of $72.21.

Prefer a DIY or open source solution.


Magento CE 2.1
OpenSuse 13.2
Apache 2.4.10
Varnish 4.1.3
Redis 3.2.3
nginx 1.11.2
