Mixed containers

You select what kind of equipment is available from our library - and Cargo-Planner will select the best combination of containers. Which containers gets used are based on factors like used volume, payload and custom rules. You can also assign costs per container type which lets the tool choose the most cost effective setup

Prioritize Center of Gravity

The stability of the container can be improved by prioritizing the Center of Gravity (CoG) when loading your cargoes. This feature will make sure that Center of Gravity will be within 10% from the center of the container.

Load on Flat racks

Do you have Out of Gauge cargoes? With Flat Rack containers, platforms and MAFI's you can load overwidth and overheight cargoes, at the same time as the Centre Of Gravity will be taken into consideration. You can easily create your own custom containers with corner posts and walls. Perfect for Project cargo shipments.

Load on Open tops

Use our Open top containers (or create your own) to load cargoes too tall to be loaded into normal dry van containers. Cargo Planner will automatically select the most appropriate containers. If a container does not have an open roof or open walls, the tool will not load cargoes that cannot be loaded through the provided door size

Load with pallets

If your cargoes are not palletized, you can select a pallet type and then load your cargoes on pallets before loading them on containers, trailers (or even other pallets!).

You can even load "out of gauge" cargoes on pallets.
