Automation Rule for Additional Handling

We are looking to see if an automation rule can be added so all orders can have added additional handling which is currently only available by checking a box under options under the shipping details.

That tick box is not available for all carriers....only UPS by Shipstation, I believe.   Additional Handling Surcharge (AHS) is automatically calculated for actual weight, length and width, but it is NOT automatically calculated for "non-standard packaging."  Allowing custom packaging types to be designated (with a tick box) when they are non-standard packaging would be a very easy solution to make sure that live rates for the non-standard packaging AHS are included in the rate quoting.
