How to load your cargo? Easily with the “step-by-step” report! 7 apr 2020

We are proud to announce that EasyCargo has improved once again!

This week, a new version of the application has been released, where each loading plan can be accompanied by a “step-by-step” report.

What does “step-by-step” loading report mean?

“Step-by-step” report uses animation to show clearly the order in which the individual items are loaded in the cargo space. This animation can also be easily shared with your colleagues via Public Link. “Step-by-step” report for your cargo can also be created in PDF format, where pictures are used to show the steps.

 

Step by Step Cargo Loading Software

How does the report look like?

The step-by-step report differs from the ordinary one in terms of displaying the cargo. In normal reports, you can see the overview with the cargo loaded, while the step-by-step report shows the individual steps.

  • You can download the complete report in PDF format here.
  • View online in 3D here.

How do I display the “step-by-step” report for the load plan?

Just login in EasyCargo, create your regular cargo loading and then click on the video icon next to the Load button. An animation will start which will show you how to load the individual items.

 

How to create step by step load plan

If you want to create a report for print, the procedure is identical with generating normal reports by clicking the print icon next to the Load button. A window with report types will pop up, select the “Step by step Report – Basic views” option and that’s it! You can also save your report as a PDF file to share it offline with your colleagues.

EasyCargo for Schools 20 mar 2020

Container and truck loading software EasyCargo announces new program for schools and universities!

EasyCargo load planning tool

We’ve been seeing interest in our truck load planner from schools for quite some time now but we’d been always dealing with this individually. In the last couple of months, the demand has, however, increased so much that we put our heads together and came up with a new offer tailor-made for schools and universities.

Who is the offer intended for?

The offer applies only to schools, universities and other educational institutions. The license can be used for educational purposes only.

How does the offer differ from a regular one?

The main difference is in the length of the free trial version. If you’re a teacher/professor, we will give you free license completely for free for one year. Students can try our container and truck loading software for free for 14 days.

How about the price? Does that differ, too?

Yes, our program provides better prices for all schools and educational institutions. When you buy one license, we will give you 19 more licenses with unlimited functionalities for free!

Does the program have any limitations?

You can find all the information, including complete program conditions at our EasyCargo for Schools page. Make sure to have a look at it. You will find out, among others, how to get our popular Container Puzzle worth USD 59 completely for free!

Export av lastplanen till Excel är här! 17 feb 2020

Vi har tagit fram den sjätte mest efterfrågade funktionen!

Den nya versionen EasyCargo har möjlighet att exportera lastningen till Excel. Hur fungerar det? Lasta helt enkelt kollin, skapa en rapport (Print Report) eller offentlig länk (Public Link) till lastningen och klicka på ikonen ”Exportera till Excel” under fliken Frakter & Utskrifter.

Vi har tagit fram följande video över hela arbetsgången:

EasyCargo truck load planning application

Alla vet inte att import från Excel av kollin för lastning fungerar sedan länge. Titta på videon för att friska upp minnet:

De nya Excel-exporterna kan självfallet återimporteras till EasyCargo. Detta kan vara lämpligt om Du vill arkivera underlagen till lastningen på Din egen arbetsplats, eller föra över till Dina kollegor för vidare bearbetning. För själva översikten räcker det med att dela en Offentlig länk till den klara lastningen.

Glöm inte att då och då titta på vår sida Release Notes, eller på Facebook, där du får information om fler förbättringar hos lastplaneringsapplikationen EasyCargo.

Tveka inte att kontakta oss om Du behöver hjälp med export av lastplanen till Excel.

Nya utbildningsvideor om användaradministration och beställning av licenser 27 jan 2020

För att underlätta arbetet med applikationen EasyCargo för optimering av lastning ännu mer, har vi två nya utbildningsvideor för dig.

I den första, som har titeln Användar- och licensadministration, lär vi dig hur du lägger till nya användare till EasyCargo-kontot och förklarar vilka typer av användare som finns och skillnaden mellan dessa. Dessutom får du reda på allt som behövs för att kunna tilldela eller återkalla licenser för en specifik användare. Inte ens avsnittet som beskriver hur man ändrar personuppgifter och ändrar inställningar hos kontot saknas.

Den andra videon, Beställning av licenser och kuponger, leder dig genom hela beställningsprocessen steg för steg. Arbetsgången vid korrekt inmatning i beställningsformuläret visas, samt också skillnaden mellan abonnemang och engångslicens. Du får också reda på vilket betalningssätt som är det snabbaste och vad du måste se upp med vid betalning via banköverföring.

Tveka inte att titta under sektionen Instruktionsvideor om du behöver friska upp processen hur en lastning skapas och hur man hanterar EasyCargo. Här finns alla hittills utgivna utbildningsvideor.

Cargo spaces for North America and Australia have just arrived! 13 nov 2019

The latest EasyCargo – Load efficiently update introduced new types of cargo spaces. We expect that these will be appreciated mostly by our users in North America and Australia.

Specifically, these are flatbeds with 1, 2 and 3 axles, trucks with semitrailers with 1, 2 and 3 axles and prime movers (tractor units) with 2 and 3 axles. For the full set of provided cargo space types, check this list.

Watch the following video to learn how to add new spaces to your EasyCargo account. We then recommend adjusting the space parameters to fit your needs. For a complete update log, see our Release Notes.

How to add the new cargo spaces to your account in EasyCargo load planning software

Here are our new flatbeds with the most common axles combinations:

Flatbed with 2 axles

Flatbed with 1 axle

Flatbed with 3 axles

Plus, the semitrailers:

Semitrailer with 1 axle

Semitrailer with 2 axles

You can adjust each type of cargo space to match your cargo space dimensions. When correct dimensions, empty per axle weights and proper limits for truck and trailer are filled in, then weight distribution can be verified in accordance with the regulations. For more information about axle weight distribution regulations for your state, you can visit www.bigtruckguide.com.

BVV Transport and Logistics 12 nov 2019

After an excellent previous experience, we participated in the International Engineering Fair, the largest industrial fair in Central Europe, yet again.

We had a great success among schools. Students tried our “Load Your Container” game, and teachers liked our demonstration of what our app can do.

The Container Loading Game

Not only the students came to load the container. Interest in our game has been across generations, and age has not been decisive for success. That’s why our EasyCargo app exists – you don’t have to drive around with Desta and try what fits or not. EasyCargo clearly shows you and your colleagues the placement of items in the selected cargo space.

BVV 2019

If you didn’t have the chance to visit our booth, you could at least look at our short video on how our game works.

Bättre översikt över viktfördelning, egna färger, samt flera andra förbättringar 19 aug 2019

Vi får ofta frågan om EasyCargo kan lastplanera med hänsyn till viktfördelningen. Svaret är självfallet ja och nu dessutom med förbättrad visualisering!

Det räcker med att välja vilken belastning Du vill se i panelen till höger. Gröna pilar visar graden av belastning och om Du låter muspekaren sväva över dem, visas tre värden: maximalt möjlig belastning, belastning från aktuell last och belastning vid tomt lastutrymme (minimal belastning).

Förbättrad visualisering av vikt

Ytterligare en nyhet är möjligheten att ändra färg på lastade kollin. Klicka på det färgade området i panelen för redigering av kollin. Därefter visas en palett med förvalda färger från vilken du kan välja. Självfallet kan du ange en helt godtycklig färg i form av en HTML-kod.

Hur man ändrar färg på lastade kollin

En liten men användbar förbättring, är möjligheten att skapa en offentlig länk till lastningen, även för dem som redan har sparats utan denna länk. Detta utförs direkt i listan över lastningar och rapporter.

Aktivering av offentlig länk till lastningen

Din ekonomiavdelning kommer säkert att glädja sig åt den nya översikten över alla beställningar med sammanhörande fakturor under fliken Licenser.

 

Transport Logistic 2019 15 jul 2019

At the beginning of June, we participated in the most extensive logistics fair in the world – Transport Logistic 2019 in Munich. Since the only experience we had so far was with smaller fairs, we were curious about what to expect. The exhibition grounds surprised us not only by the size of the pavilions but also by the number of visitors who stopped by at our stand.

The main topics were the trade war between the US and China, the lack of drivers, but also the New Silk Road, and of course, artificial intelligence in logistics.

What intrigued us? For example, MetriX Freight, an innovative volume measurement solution. How does it work? The camera sensors are mounted on a cross-beam beneath the hall ceiling. Objects up to 2.5 meters in width are captured with absolute precision and in less than one second. The packages can even stay on the forklift in the process. For each measurement, the system generates a barcode that the driver transfers to the system using a handheld scanner. After this process, you know the exact size of the items, and nothing prevents you from creating a load plan with EasyCargo.

Another point of interest was CakeBoxx – a container that is accessible from all sides (even from the top) for easier loading and unloading. That is suitable, for example, when unusually large items do not allow normal loading of the container.

We also had the opportunity to meet our Swedish colleagues who are developing a similar app Cargo-Planner.

Finally, we would like to thank the Ministry of Industry and Trade for providing facilities and services within the Czech Republic’s presentation at Transport Logistic. We hope that the competition to load the container at our stand was a pleasant experience at such a large fair. We are already looking forward to the next year 😉

PS: If you didn’t have the time to visit us in Munich, don’t worry. You can meet us at the International Engineering Fair in Brno, 7th – 11th October 2019.

Logistik & Transport Fair 2018 9 nov 2018

We have some beautiful memories of the Logistik & Transport fair in Göthenburg, Sweden. Many thanks to Svenska Mässan for the excellent organization and, of course, to those who came to see us there!

It was great fun presenting our product in Sweden and we are looking forward to the next exhibition which will take place from June 4th to June 7th, 2019 at Transport Logistics in Munich, Germany. (So, put your Lederhosen on and spend a beautiful day at Messe München!)

By the way, we’ve added some other languages to EasyCargo. Swedish is one and because of significant interest from Italy, we’ve also added Italian.

Thanks for giving us a full load! ;) 11 dec 2017

Thanks for giving us a full load during the International Engineering Fair in Brno, where our company was present for the first time. We had many opportunities to seek new partners and to spend a lot of time talking with our existing customers to get feedback on EasyCargo.

We were pleased to receive so many positive reactions – you were very kind! However, it was also essential for us to learn about areas where EasyCargo could perform even better – we recorded all your comments and suggestions and are already working on improving our app. You can look forward to new functions that will make using our software even more comfortable. Don’t forget to follow us on our Facebook page to be the first to hear about upcoming news and events!

Invisible changes – faster, stable and more secure load planning 2 aug 2017

In July, we deployed a vital EasyCargo release. Thanks to this update, the application has improved stability and offers much smoother performance. It’s noticeably faster in processing the calculations and opening saved shipments. As a result, the responsiveness in the manual load plan editor is improved. On top of that, EasyCargo now runs on https:// secure protocol used e.g. for online banking.

Although it took quite long to deliver this update; we know it’ll be important for the future development of other functionalities, which will be delivered in the upcoming months.

We have also extended our video tutorials library. You and your colleagues can use EasyCargo in up to 9 languages now. Watch the tutorial videos in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, French, Polish, Hungarian, Finnish and Czech.

Manual load plan adjustments 10 aug 2016

One of the most wanted features, based on our users’ feedback, is the possibility to manually adjust placement and rotation of the boxes in the final load plan. We are happy to announce that this functionality is now available for all EasyCargo users.

How to make a manual load plan adjustment in 3 steps?

In the EasyCargo app, when the load plan calculation is finished…

  1. Click the left mouse button, while pointing at the box to activate it.
  2. Choose the new placement by pointing at the green highlighted area.
  3. Click again to confirm the new position of the box.

If you need to rotate the box, click with the right mouse button to switch to manipulation mode. Click on the arrows to rotate the box in the desired direction. Confirm by clicking the left mouse button.

Note: No constraints are respected when you manipulate the items freely. It is solely up to the user to respect the loading rules.

Faster public load plans and improved import 29 dec 2015

At the end of the year, we released the latest version of EasyCargo. Many internal improvements have been carried out for an upcoming functionality, which will be presented in 2016. However, you can already experience the quicker opening of online public load plans (see the picture and link below). Imports from Excel sheets have also been improved. Now you can set the app to skip all rows with zero items so that you can use the Excel sheet template as a product database.
