UPS Settings - does this work in the UK?

Here's another address in the UK. UPS is calculating the price to be the same, £25.15, to deliver to London (some 400+ miles) as it is to deliver to me (6 miles). Something is definitely wrong. No matter where you choose in the UK the charge is £25.15. :(

Also, I submitted a test order to my own home address, which I provided in an earlier post above, and whilst the order was processed correctly in the Sage Pay test environment when I returned to the website the £25.15 shipping charge remained in the cart. Shouldn't that value be 'killed' once an order has been processed?

Checking with the client, they have a UPS account which they log in to. Within this they can create a shipping itinerary from their business address to clients in their Address Book. They also have to specify the dimensions of the package, value and there is also an option to select to have a signature received on delivery.

One thing I did notice was that my client's UPS account did not allow me to enter a postcode with a space. So, for example, I was trying to submit my own postcode DG8 6AF but it would only allow it if I entered it as DG86AF. Does eCart take this into account? UK users will most definitely leave the space in and I wondered if that was why it wasn't calculating the correct amount.

As it turned out, it offered me two prices of £14.40 and £10.22 for delivery to my address, well below the £25.15 that it's quoting via eCart.

I'm therefore not convinced that eCart is passing the correct information to UPS.

Thanks for your help with this.

EDIT: On line 78 of my confirm_cart.php I noticed that the ShipperZip was listed as DG8 7EN (with a space) so I manually removed the space and re-uploaded. I also removed the space in my test delivery address zip code field, although we can't rely on customers doing that obviously but I thought I should for testing purposes. Now it wants to charge £27.12 for the delivery! It's also still not charging any shipping for Germany. :(

That will teach me for trying to be clever!

Here is that full section. Perhaps you'll spot something obvious:
