5.1.12 How to load goods according to the order and quantity of the container

When cargo is loaded into a container, it is sometimes hoped to fill a certain type of container first, and then load another type of container. For example, it is required that the goods be loaded with two 40GP first, and the remaining goods are then loaded with 20GP. How to define it in LoadMaster?

Let's use an example to explain.

Cargo data:































Loading requirements:

1) The goods can only be placed as the height is vertical to the ground.

2) The goods are first filled in two 40GP containers, and the rest will be filled in 20GP containers.

According to the loading requirements, the task type [Loading Container/Multiple Cargoes] should be selected and click to enter.

Enter the [Basic Information] interface. The items in this page is optional, and users can fill in the PO number, order number or destination information according to actual work requirements for later check. Next, start to designing the plan:

Step 1: Click [Cargo] on the left to enter the cargo interface. For there are lots of cargo types, you should add them in batches by [Add Cargo>Import From Excel]. Firstly, click [Add Cargo>Get Excel Template] to download the Excel template and save it to a certain location in your computer.

Secondly, fill in the template with the cargo information. ①Copy the name, quantity, length, width, height, and weight (gross weight of a single box) of the goods into the template, which are required items. Pay attention to the matching of the units. “Weight” refers to the gross weight of a single carton or box of goods. If the cargo is too light, the “Weight” can be ignored and not filled in, and the system will default to "1".

②Then define the load orientations of the goods. For it is required that cargoes can be placed as the height is vertical to the ground, that is only “stand” and “stand & rotate” are allowed, you should fill in “0” under the “allowed” Column of other orientations. “0” means not allowed such load orientation, leave it blank or “1” means allowed.

For there are no other requirements, you do not need to set other parameters, leaving them as the default value. The specific details of each parameter can be found in this guidance documentation. Save and close the template when finishing.

Thirdly, return the [Cargo] page, click [Add Cargo>Import From Excel], choose the template in the dialog box, and open it. Then the cargo information will be imported to the task.

Step 2: Add a container on the [Container] page. It is required to fill two 40GP first, then 20GP. Therefore you need to add two 40GP first, then add 20GP. Click [Import from Database], tick 40GP first, and then 20GP in the pop-up box ,and then click "Add" and close the pop-up box; then modify the "quantity" of 40GP to "2", and finally define the corner size and reserved size of the container respectively, the size of the corner is 10*10*10cm. Precautions for defining the reserved size, please refer to "How to simulate carton expansion and manual interval".

Step 3: Set the loading rules on the [Loading Rules] page. Check the [Select containers in the same sequence as the input container list] under the [Container Selection Method].

Click [Optimize] above to get the loading plan. In the list on the left, you can see that two 40GPs are used firstly, and then three 20GPs to use, which fully meets the loading requirements. Click the container name respectively, and you can see the 3D overview of loading. On the right side of the figure are the cargo statistics, loading steps and balance analysis of current container.

After the scheme audit is completed, you can use your mobile phone to guide the on-site loading and download the loading report to make the packing list and customs declaration. Details please refer to this guidance book.
