Help in calculating box size needed for multiple items

Post

I'm hoping this isn't a unique situation.  I have the need for setting up a database to calculate the number of shipping containers ( boxes ) needed for a given set of items.  The items are identified with weight and dimensions, and the shipping containers come in pre-determined sizes.  Multiple items with different dimensions and weights can, and should be grouped together in one box.  Are there any scripts, formulas, calculations, databases out there that can solve this?
