Optimize cargo loadings by minimising free volumes and considering unloading sequence

Why use software to plan truck loading?

 

When transporting less than truckload (LTL) shipments or different container types, optimizing use of loading volumes and loading sequence is crucial to remain efficient: Every run a vehicle’s loading volume is not fully utilized, is a loss of revenue. Every extra minute spent at an unloading point, is time lost. Transporting time-sensitive freight as well as fresh and frozen food products, introduces additional constraints since these goods must be delivered within a limited time. Keeping an overview of cargo loadings is difficult. Matching loading sequences with stops along routes further increases the complexity of the loading process.

Features of Load Space Optimization API

Visualize your packing plan in 3D

  • The PTV xServer Load Space Optimization API allows you to visualize your packing plan interactively and in 3D. This way, you can view the results from all directions and angles.

Why should you optimize load space with PTV xServer?

 

The PTV xServer Load Space Optimization API automatically and quickly solves these complex optimization problems: You simply define the characteristics of the truck's loading space and the transport units. The system automatically delivers a loading space layout, which shows the wall distribution and the location of the individual transport units under consideration of all restrictions. Due to its standardised interface, the API perfectly integrates into other software solutions. For example, you can easily connect it with other PTV xServer components or use it as a stand-alone component with your existing system architecture.
