Case study

One of the top 5 largest forwarders in the world conducted a study in the spring of 2020 to evaluate the effects of implementing our tool for air container load planning. The results?

Load factor increased with 2.5%

Higher capacity utilization!

Flown as booked percentage increased by 3%

Higher customer satisfaction!

Working on International Logistics for Touring within the Music Industry, Cargo-Planner has been an exceptional support to me in fine tuning the most suitable Chartered Aircraft when planning tour schedules and ensuring the correct equipment is utilised with precision, to stay competitive and on budget. The team have offered superb assistance through several challenging projects.


Automatic bottom raise

Air pallets can often be utilized more if loading for example empty pallets in the bottom to raise the load and utilize the space above the edges used for attaching the cargo securing nets. Set the automatic bottom spacer property and the tool will check if this increases the utilization and add this dunnage material for you!

Lower body containers

Air pallets and containers are usually restricted by the shape of the aircraft body, and it can be hard to calculate how to utilize these containers. With Cargo-Planner this is not a problem!

Upper body containers

Using contours at the bottom of the containers makes it possible to create lower body containers and the same way for upper body contours. See all the pallets and containers we have available in our Equipment Library.

Special loads

If you have special loads like for example long pieces of cargoes that needs to stretch over several positions you can do that as well. The tool will make sure it does not intersect with other cargoes.

Shipping factor

A shipping factor can be set to calculate the volumetric weight of cargoes which is used to determine the density of the cargo by incorporating both dimensions and weight. The volumetric weight is compared against the package’s actual weight. The heaviest value of these weights is used as the chargeable weight which is considered when loading the cargoes.
