5.2.2 How to define that goods of different orders cannot be mixed

When calculating the pallet of multi-specification goods, it is generally required that the goods of different orders cannot be mixed, that is, only the goods of the same order are allowed to be mixed. How to define in the LoadMaster?

Here is an example to explain:

Cargo data:


























Loading requirements:

1) The cargo cannot be placed as the length is vertical to the ground.

2) When palletizing, only A and B can be mixed on the same pallet, the others cannot be mixed.

3) Calculate how to pallet the goods and what kind of pallet is suitable.

4) The height of the pallet is limited to 1.2 meters (including the height of the pallet itself), and 5cm is allowed to extend in the length and width directions.

According to the current loading requirements, the task type [Loading Flat Pallet/Multi Cargoes] should be selected.

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 cargo cannot be placed as the length is vertical to the ground, that is “lay” and “lay & rotate” are not allowed, you should fill in “0” under the “allowed” column of these two orientations. “0” means not allowed such load orientation, leave it blank or “1” means allowed.

③Define the loading parameters. For it is required that only A and B can be mixed on a pallet, and the others cannot be mixed, it is necessary to set the same group name for cargo A B that can be mixed , and set different group for cargoes can not be mixed. The group name can be numbers, Chinese characters, and letters. In this case, letters are used to define.

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 add a pallet. Click [Import from Database], and then check the frequently used pallets in the pop-up box and click [Add]. Set the [maximum load height] of the pallet to “120CM”, and the extend size to “5cm”.

If there is no commonly used pallet in the database, you can click the [flat pallet] under [Add Container], and then edit the name, length, width, height and other information. In order to avoid repeated input each time, you can also maintain the commonly used pallet in the database. For details, please refer to the above "Container Management" .

Step 3: Click [Loading Rules] on the left to enter the [Loading Rules] page. Uncheck [Allow different groups of cargoes to be mixed in one container].

Finally, click [Optimize] above or click [Loading Plan] on the left to calculate. In the list on the left, you can see that the cargoes are loaded over by two pallets of 1100*1100 and two pallets of 1200*1000. Through the 3D diagram or the cargo statistics on the right side of the diagram, you can see that only A B are mixed, and no other are mixed, which fully meets the loading requirements.

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.
