EasyCargo is a web-based container stuffing program that helps you plan your loading using the most efficient 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.
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 mailbox. Sometimes this email can be marked as spam – should you not receive your password, please check the spam folder, too.

OS Windows 7 or higher and latest versions of Chrome, Firefox or Edge web browsers
OS Mac OS X or higher with the Chrome or Safari web browser.
2 GB of RAM, active internet connection.
Note: In the latest version of Chrome and Safari, EasyCargo is supposed to run without the need to install anything. In Firefox, it might be necessary to switch manually to WebGL under the user profile to prevent the request for installing the Unity Web Player which is not supported anymore.
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. (In Firefox, it might be necessary to switch manually to WebGL under the user profile to prevent the request for installing the Unity Web Player which is not supported anymore.)
If you still experience problems, please try to open the application in an incognito window.
If possible, please try if the EasyCargo application runs outside of your common workspace because one of the reasons might be a firewall or an unexpected limitation on your internet connection.
There is an option of integration with the SAP ERP implemented by the company status C. All the data about transported goods are transferred directly from SAP to EasyCargo. You can find more information on status C websites.
The application is available instantly. EasyCargo runs online in your browser, so no installation is required and you will receive updates on a regular basis automatically. There is no need for reinstallation. New functionalities will simply appear in the application while the original ones will be kept or improved.
Yes, we do! 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 and the minimum order amount is 10 tickets.
You can find detailed step-by-step instructions in our tutorial video.
Enterprise licensing was designed especially for big corporations with centralized purchasing departments that either need more licenses for their employees or even have multiple branches in various countries where they want to use EasyCargo. You can learn more on the Enterprise licensing program site.
For Universities and other educational institutions, we offer an extension of one user license for up to 20 users.
If you want to purchase an educational license, please contact us using our contact formor our e-mail email@example.com where we can guide you on how to purchase an educational license, too.
For professors and students, we offer additional pedagogical material in the form of worksheets, where they will be able to get acquainted with EasyCargo, from the easiest to the most complex tasks. The worksheets will soon be available for free download. Solutions are only available for school representatives who are part of the EasyCargo to Schools project.

Yes, for large enterprises, Enterprise licensing program was designed. It is tailored especially to big corporations with centralized purchasing departments that either need more licenses for their employees or even have multiple branches in various countries where they want to use EasyCargo. You can learn more about the program on our Enterprise licensing program page.
There are several payment options depending on the currency and licensing model (one-time payment or subscription). In general, you can choose between a 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.
Note: You must have the Administrator role to be able to re-assign the license.
Under the Users tab, in the License column you can easily recognize to whom the license is assigned (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. Thus the license is 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 Licences 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.
There is also an option to purchase a license directly from our webshop.
You can order the license in the EasyCargo app or buy license keys for container load planning directly from the webshop. The new way of purchasing is faster and more suitable for those customers who are not able to place an order directly in the EasyCargo application. There are three types of 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. Read the detailed info in our Journal.
After purchasing from our webshop, you receive two separate emails. The first one includes details about your order and the second one contains your license key. Please make sure you check both of your emails as well as the spam folder. If you still can’t find the license key, please contact us using our contact form, and include the order number in the subject line.
(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.
You can, therefore, 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 for some reason. 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, however, 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. Thanks for your understanding.
Yes, here you can download the EasyCargo Handbook in pdf form. If you favor instructions in text form rather than watching videos, this is the best alternative for you. You can download it and print it if you wish.
You can purchase our Container Challenge Puzzle in our webshop. It’s great not only for schools; you can also entertain your customers, employees, or colleagues. It’s available in two colors for $59, shipping included.
