Fedex Packaging options

I stumbled upon a small problem. Now we sell figurines on the website.
We can fit 2 figurines in one shipping box.
If there are more four figurines we need to use 2 boxes, for 3 statues - 6 boxes and so on.
I have noticed that fedex module reads the stats from one figurine (weight and dimensions) and if there are multiple figurines ordered it just multiplies the characteristics by the number of figurines, which is not right, because we end up with shipping fees higher than actual fedex charges.
Here is my question:
- is there a way to add package characteristics to the module? So for example we can enter dimensions on the package and how many products fit in one box (in our case 2). This way the module will multiple the price by boxes and not by number of products ordered, that would be closer to what Fedex actually charges.

Any help is much appreciated.

We have uploaded the new version and deleted the old one manually, so it was a fresh install, code is not changed.

We had to fix the problem ourselves. We have found that the install for the new version of the fedex module was putting the files into the root folder, we had to place them manually.

As said in the PM you have received, we have re-installed the shop and the plugin, everything was deleted, and installed from the beginning, still didn't work, that is where we went and made adjustments.
If you are interested in discussing this issue, and test with us the module to improve it's functionality (there are still features missing) please contact us in the 9am - 5pm PST (Pacific Time). The website went live and we cannot give you access anymore after business hours.

Thanks for the help so far.
