Is there any way to add additional weight to shipping for packaging to the shipping calculation for UPS realtime?

Thanks for your help...

Not in any configuration setting that I'm aware of but you can certainly modify the source code to do this. I did that a while back. I actually add different amounts based on the core weight. I figured the more "base" weight the bigger the box needed and a 19x17x17 box is going to weigh more then 15x15x15 which is going to weigh more then a 12x12x8, etc not to mention the packing material too although normally not much.

My code is highly modded all over or I'd have grabbed some code for you. If no one else posts anything for you I'll see if I can throw something together for you.
