Logistics are a broad discipline that covers everything from calculating optimal delivery routes to minimizing time en route and maximizing the transportation capacity of cars, aircraft and vessels used. If you are a logistics manager looking to maximize the load of the company’s containers or a port employee looking for some optimization of the cargo loading routine, you will definitely find Cargo Optimizer an exceptionally useful tool!
Cargo Optimizer is a feature-packed and highly intuitive logistical tool designed for optimizing the process of filling standard containers (ocean containers, trucks and refrigerators) with cargo. The software supports up to 100 cargo sizes per shipment, multiple container sizes per shipment, loading by sequence, FILO (First In, Last Out), manual override and automatic cost calculation, just to name a few functions. The software comes with a number of built-in tools, such as a carton designer, a cargo database, a container database, a customer database, reports and so on. Not only does the program calculate the optimal layout for boxes and cartons inside a truck or container, but also visualizes the process in several 3D views, generates weight distribution graphs for balanced loading and supports several interlocking methods.
If you are in the logistics industry, Cargo Optimizer is a must-have tool for you. This affordable tool offers lifetime updates and nearly everything you would ever need to ensure that your containers carry as much cargo as possible, this maximizing revenue for your department or company.
