EasyCargo is loading software for trucks and containers (also called load planner or load planning software). Such an online truck and container calculator helps you plan your loading using the most optimized distribution of cargo items in the given cargo space. You just enter the dimensions and eventual constraints of articles (e.g. non-stackable, non-tiltable, non-rotatable) to be loaded and EasyCargo will propose a solution in the form of a load plan. You can generate a print report with details of the loading plan or share the result with your customers/vendors via a link.
EasyCargo is simple to learn and easy to use. You can test the application for 10 days free of charge; with no obligation at all, just sign in here.
We are developing new functionalities and features (e.g. recently implemented database of cargo items in the application; US trailers for load planning). At the same time, based on our research, we offer the lowest investment price on the market. If you find another comparable solution for a lower price, feel free to let us know.
Yes, you can! Please use our template, which you can download directly from the application under the “Shipments & Reports” tab right after clicking on the Import of Shipment button. Then you will be able to choose the template based on the measurement units (Metric or Imperial). Insert the articles, descriptions, dimensions, and constraints of specific items.
Note: Never change the names of the Excel sheet tabs.
You can even keep a list of all the items that you usually load and then only adjust the quantities each time. In that case, before processing the Excel import, uncheck the “Also import items with zero count” option so that the import process will skip the rows with zero count items.
In the next step, you will be asked to enter your email address and transcribe the code from the picture. A new password will be generated and sent to your email. Sometimes this email can be marked as spam so be sure to check your spam mailbox just in case.
If the problem persists, do not hesitate to contact us.
No, the software is web-based and runs online in your web browser as SaaS (Software as a Service).
This approach follows the current trends while providing regular updates as well as enabling access from any location. You can use EasyCargo anywhere and simply share your load plan with others using a public link generated by the application.
The application should run smoothly in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It is preferred that you use one of these browsers.
If you still experience problems, please try to open the application in an incognito window.
If possible, please see if the EasyCargo application runs outside of your common workspace. One of the reasons EasyCargo might not run could be due to a firewall or an unexpected limitation on your internet connection.
If the problem persists, feel free to contact us using our contact form.
There is the option of integration with the SAP ERP implemented by the company status C (available in German only). Thus all the data about transported goods are transferred directly from SAP to EasyCargo. Here you can find more information.
The application is available instantly as EasyCargo load planner runs online right in your web browser. No installation is required and you will receive updates on a regular basis automatically. New functionalities will simply appear in the application while the original ones will be kept or improved. Since EasyCargo works right in your web browser; it is ready to work as soon as you are.
No, you do not have to. For your needs, there are Tickets that activate your access to the application for 24 hours per each ticket. Whenever you need to plan loads; sign in and activate one of the tickets. Tickets can be purchased via the order form. The minimum order amount is 10 tickets.
You can find detailed step-by-step instructions in our tutorial video.
For teachers and professors, we offer a one-year license with all the functions and updates for free. For students, we offer 14-day access for free. Alternatively, educational institutions have the option to get each purchased license extended for up to 20 users. For more information; visit our page EasyCargo for Schools, contact us using our contact form, or at firstname.lastname@example.org where we can guide you on how to purchase an educational license.
There are several payment options depending on the currency and licensing model (one-time payment or subscription). In general, you can choose between a debit/credit card payment, PayPal, or an international bank transfer.
More users can share one license, but they can’t work with the application at the same time. Each time, the license needs to be re-assigned to another user directly in the application under the “Users tab”. You will need two licenses for two users working simultaneously.
Under the “Users tab” in the License column, you can easily recognize whom the license is assigned to (marked in blue):
If there are free licenses, you will have the option to check the box in the respective line to assign the license to the given user.
If this is not the case, you can either order more licenses or remove a license from another user by unchecking the box in the given line. The license has been removed from the given user and becomes available for assigning to another user.
First, you need to register and sign in to the application. When your free license expires, the order form will be shown automatically. If you want to order a license and your free license is still valid; go to the “Licenses tab” and click on “Order more tickets or licenses” to view the order form. The Licenses tab is available to a company administrator (user, which created the registration in EasyCargo and other users with the Administrator role).
You can find detailed step-by-step instructions in our tutorial video.
You can order the license in the EasyCargo application or, newly, buy license keys for load planning directly from the online store. The new way of ordering is not only faster but also more suitable for those customers who, for various reasons, cannot place an order directly in the EasyCargo application. This way you can order license keys for all three types of licenses. You will receive the purchased license in the form of a license key, which you simply enter in the appropriate field in the EasyCargo application. Here you can find detailed information and this link will lead you to the online store directly.
(Priority) Groups enable you to decide in which order the items will be loaded into the cargo space. Items in Group 1 will be loaded first, then the second group, then the third, etc.
Therefore, you can influence the load plan e.g. depending on the order in which the final destinations will be visited by the truck.
Priority Groups can also be useful if you need to rearrange items in the load plan. The algorithm automatically loads the largest boxes first but in some cases, this might not be the desired solution. Priority Groups enable you to change the order of loading items.
Currently, you can only plan the loading of cuboid and rectangular shapes with EasyCargo. Unfortunately, cylindrical shapes / pipes / other round articles are not supported yet. We have this on our list of most wanted features to be developed. This being said, it is rather a long-term goal.
Other types of shapes are not planned for the near future. We don’t plan to add triangular shapes as the calculation would become too complex. With 90-degree triangles, you can simulate loading using a box representing two such triangles. Thank you for your understanding.
Unfortunately, at this moment, pallets are not supported yet by the application. We are working on a solution for pallets. This being said, it is a long-term goal. Once this functionality is available; we will inform registered customers in our newsletter.
A meantime solution is to plan pallets separately. You can create a container with specific dimensions representing a pallet and plan placing the items into this pallet. In the next step, enter the items representing pallets (together with their dimensions). In using step-by-step load planning into more cargo spaces, you can find out how many pallets can be loaded.
EasyCargo currently doesn’t generate a load plan into more cargo spaces automatically. The load plans need to be generated step by step, one after another. After loading each cargo space, you can generate a print report which you can save as a pdf or a public link you can share with others. You can find more details on how to plan the load into more cargo spaces in this tutorial video.
Yes, here you can download the EasyCargo Handbook in pdf form. If you prefer instructions in text form rather than watching videos, this is the right option for you. You can download it and print it if you wish.
In addition to licenses, you can purchase our popular “Container Challenge” puzzle, too. It’s great not only for schools; you can also entertain your customers, employees, or colleagues. It’s available for $59 in our online store.
