Container Management

If you will use LoadMaster for a long time, you can import the frequently used container data into the database at one time. Therefore repeated input can be avoided at the subsequent plan designing, which can improve the work efficiency of subsequent stowage calculations.

1)[Directly Add]: Click [Directly Add], and then edit the name (must be unique), type and properties of the container(see “Containers Attributes” for details). 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 container management interface.

Precautions for filling template:

  • The name of the container must be unique and cannot be duplicated. It can be named according to the "length*width*height" of the container. If there is a duplicate name, a prompt will occur accordingly.

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

  • Copy the name, length, width and height of the container in the template, which are required items. Pay attention to the matching of data units.

  • Define the type of container: “0” represents a carton; “1” represents a flat pallet; “2” represents a box pallet; “3” represents a container; and then define the corresponding parameters according to the type of container.

Users just need to click [Import from Database] to add the goods that already have been imported into the database. There is no need to input information such as the length, width and height of the container each time, which can further improve the work efficiency.
