5.1.9 How to realize the loading with a certain proportion of cargoes in a set

When a set of products is divided and loaded into multiple boxes, and there are multiple sets of products mixed, the goods should be loaded proportionally. For example, 1 table and 4 chairs are a set of products, and the internal and external of air conditioners need to load as a proportion of 1:1, then how to define it in LoadMaster?

Let's use an example to explain.

Cargo data:































Loading requirements:

1)Load orientation: Only the height is vertical to the ground.

2)A and B, C and D are set products, which should be loaded as a set. 1 box of A and 4 boxes of B are a set of products; the proportion of C and D is 1:1.

Calculate what type of container is suitable for this batch of goods, and how many containers will be used.

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.

③Define cargo attributes: For cargo A and B, C and D need to be loaded in set, you need to define relevant parameters.

To define the set, you need to set the "Cargo Set Name" and "Quantity in Cargo Set". The "Cargo Set Name" of the goods in a set must be the same. The name can be letters or numbers or Chinese characters or their combination. The "Quantity in Cargo Set" refers to the number of each cargo in a set or loading ratio in a set of products.

In this case, the "Cargo Set Name" of cargo AB is defined as "set 1", and the "Quantity in Cargo Set" is 1: 4; the "Cargo Set Name" of cargo CD is "set 2", and the "Quantity in Cargo Set" is 1: 1. Note: the quantity of each cargo must match the proportion in the suite.

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: Click [Container] on the left to enter the [Container] interface. For the user does not know the type and quantity of container that should be used, it is necessary to add all the commonly used container types so that the system can select the most appropriate container from such containers.

For the commonly used container information is already maintained in the database, click [Import from Database], check the 20GP, 40GP and 40HC in the pop-up box, and then click [Add]. Edit the corner castings size and reserved size of the container, the size of the corner castings is 10*10*10cm. Precautions for defining the reserved size, please refer to "How to simulate carton expansion and manual interval".

Step 3: Click [Loading Rules] on the left to enter the [Loading Rules] page. For there is no special loading demands, you needn't change the default rules in this page.

Click [Optimize] above to get the loading plan. In the list on the left, you can see that this batch of goods has been loaded by using two 40GP. Click the container name respectively, you can view the 3D overview of each container. On the right of this 3D picture, there are cargo statistics of the current container, loading steps and balance analysis.

You can see from the cargo statistics table on the right side of the loading stereogram:

The first cabinet is loaded with 21 A and 84 B, which meets the ratio requirement of 1:4; 14 C and 14 D meet the ratio requirement of 1:1;

The second cabinet is loaded with 11 A and 44 B, which meets the ratio requirement of 1:4; 29 C and 29 D meet the ratio requirement of 1:1.

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.
