4.4.1 Methods of Adding Containers

There are two ways to add containers: [Import from Database] and add directly through [Add container], similar to the method of adding goods.

1) [Import from Database]: The container database has stored commonly used container information, including commonly used pallets, trucks, and containers. If there is no commonly used container in the database, you can add the container information to the container database. For details, please refer to “Container Management”.

Specific steps: Click [Import from Database], check the containers that need to be loaded in the pop-up box, and then click [Add]. Edit the relevant properties of the container. For details, please see the “Container Attributes”.

If you want LoadMaster automatically select the appropriate container, you only need to import the different size of container in same type, and the system will automatically select the appropriate container when calculating.

2) Direct addition: When there is no required container in the container database, you can add the container directly.

Click [Add Container] to add the container corresponding to the task type. For example, if you select [Loading Container] task, you can only add a container; if you select [Loading Flat Pallet] task, you can only add a pallet.

Then click [+] to edit the length, width, height, and maximum weight of the container, as well as the parameters corresponding to different types of containers. For example, the container needs to define the corner casting size and the reserved size. For the specific parameter description, please refer to the “Container Attributes” below.
