Creating Custom Shipping Method In Magento, Weight vs Destination and Zones?

am just switching from my e-commerce shopping basket website to a Magento implementation.

Currently we have different Shipping Zones for different countries, and the weight of the final shopping basket determines the Shipping Price for the selected country. We therefore just have one shipping method, i.e. “Standard Shipping”.

What I would like to do is use the Country Code to carry out a lookup and locate the Postal Zone and use that Postal Zone to lookup/calculate the Shipping Price of the basket based on it’s weight.

Have seen a few examples of Flat Rates, but not too sure if they are applicable?

I don’t have the finances to buy an extension as yet.

Thank you for any help or advice,
