If you send your loading documents to other business partners, then you'll find the new functionality we've added to the software useful. You can now add your company logo to your reports and make your documents become company materials.
To insert your logo, you need to edit your company profile. You can get there via the profile tab located in the top right corner.
We've added new functionality to the EasyCargo load planning software that allows you to automatically archive all of your shipments and it will come in handy if you have hundreds of them in the Shipments and Reports tab that you can't keep track of anymore.
Therefore, you can access your Shipments Archive via the Shipments and Reports tab. You will find the button at the bottom of the table behind the Import of shipment and Show Autosaved Shipments options.
From now on, you will know which items to load in which quantity and in which step. We've added a legend to the app so you can easily organize each step of the loading process. How does this improvement differ from the “step-by-step” loading report we wrote about in this article? You will find out in the next lines.
As you may already know, the “step-by-step” loading report lets you know the order in which the items are placed in the cargo hold. You can follow the loading process directly in the app using an animation. Simply create a loading procedure and click on the video icon to start the animation.
We have perhaps the biggest news of the year in load planning for you: EasyCargo can load onto pallets! Not only that, we have developed a special algorithm to do so. When loading the same types of items, it works with the specifics of loading onto pallets and manages to make the most of the space while maintaining the load stable. Let's describe in more detail what this means in practice.
Do you remember our recent post in which we shared three practical exercises to test your load planning skills? It’s these exercises (in a slightly modified form) that are a part of worksheets - a comprehensive set of tasks primarily intended for high school and university students.
While browsing our website you might have come across the term API. This abbreviation is closely related to the IT industry, so you may not fully understand what this service is all about and what benefits you can get from it. We will discuss what an API is and how it works. We thought it was worth familiarizing you with this topic, as it will, for example, help you extend the functionality of your company's software. So we decided to create a three-part series to cover this topic in a decent way. Today we will focus on the theoretical part. In the conclusion of this article, you will learn what the upcoming articles of the series will contain.
