Cargo Management

If the size of each product is fixed and will not change due to different orders, the goods data can be imported into the database for storage in batches, which can improve the work efficiency of subsequent stowage calculations.

1)[Directly Add]: Click [Directly Add], and then edit the name (must be unique), length, width, height, load orientations, stacking orders and other information of the goods. And finally click [save] to add the cargo information to the database.

2) [Import from Excel] : [Get Excel Template]-fill in the template-[Import from Excel] at the top right of the cargo management interface.

Precautions for filling template:

  • The name of the goods must be unique and cannot be duplicated. If there is a duplicate name, a prompt will occur accordingly.

  • The same name is allowed in the “description” column.

  • The “weight” column should not be empty. If it is a light cargo or the specific weight is not clear, you can filled in as “1”.

  • All six load orientations are allowed in the template by default, that is, random placement. Set the disallowed orientation by filling in the “allowed” column under this orientation as “0”. “0” means not allowed, “1” or blank means allowed.

    Parameters such as the “stacking orders”, “bottom only” and “max stack” can also be maintained in the database.

For the goods that have been imported in database, when the subsequent stowage calculation is carried out, there is no need to fill in the length, width, height, weight, load orientations and other defined parameters in the excel template. You only need to fill in the name, quantity, and other loading requirements of the goods. But it must be ensured that the name of the goods input into the template is exactly the same as the one stored in the database. From that LoadMaster can automatically read the size, load orientations and other information of the goods from the database according to the name of the goods filled in the template.
