How to load your container? 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 a “step-by-step” report can be created for each loading plan.

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

“Step-by-step” report Is using animation to demonstrate the order in which the individual items are loaded in the container. This animation can also be easily shared with your colleagues via Public Link. “Step-by-step” report for your container can also be created in PDF format, where you can find step-by-step pictures to show you the process of loading.

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 only see the overview with the cargo loaded, while the step-by-step report shows all the individual steps.

  • You can download the complete report in PDF format here.

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

Just login in EasyCargo, create your regular container loading and then click on the video icon next to the Load button. After clicking, the animation showing how to load the individual items will start.

Container packing software EasyCargo announces new licensing for schools and universities!

EasyCargo container packing software free

We’ve been seeing interest in our container loading calculator from schools for quite some time now but we’d been always dealing with the demand individually. In the last couple of months, the demand has increased so much that we came up with an offer tailor-made for schools and universities.

Who is the offer 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 your regular subscription?

The main difference is in the length of the free trial version. If you’re a teacher/professor, we will give you a one-year license completely for free. Students can try our container stuffing and optimization software for free for 14 days (please make sure your students will create their accounts under your main account).

How about the pricing? Is it cheaper?

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

What are the rules?

You can find detailed information, including terms&conditions at the EasyCargo to Schools page. Make sure to check it out – part of the offer is our popular Container Puzzle worth USD 59 completely for free!

Not everyone knows that the import of items from Excel has been a huge part of EasyCargo container planning app for a while now. Watch this video for a reminder:

Of course, exports to Excel can be imported back to EasyCargo. This could be useful if you want to archive the documents on your disc or provide them to colleagues for further editing. For the preview itself, it is sufficient to share the Public Link to the calculated load plan.

New video tutorials on user management and ordering licenses 7 Jan 2020

We have created two new video tutorials to make your work with the container stuffing software EasyCargo even easier.

The first one, User and License Administration will teach you how to add users to your EasyCargo account and explain different types of users. You will also learn everything about assigning or removing licenses. There is also a section explaining how to change your personal data and manage your account.

The second video named Ordering licenses and tickets provides a step-by-step guide through the entire ordering process. It will teach you how to correctly fill the order form and explain the difference between a subscription and one-off license. You will also learn which payment method is the fastest and what should you keep in mind when paying by a bank transfer.

Now you know everything about the administration. Do you need a quick recapitulation on how to work with EasyCargo? Then have a look at the rest of our tutorial videos.

New cargo spaces for North America and Australia are here! 13 Nov 2019

The latest EasyCargo – Load efficiently update introduced several 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 demo to learn how to add new spaces to your EasyCargo account. We then recommend adjusting the cargo space parameters to your liking.

BVV Transport and Logistics and our Container challenge game 12 Nov 2019

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

We had a great success among schools. Students tried our “Container Challenge” game, and teachers liked functionalities of our application.

The Container Challenge Game EasyCargo container stuffing

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 and helps with container optimization hundreds of companies all around the world – you don’t have to drive around and try what fits or not. EasyCargo clearly shows you and your colleagues the placement of items in the selected cargo space.

BVV 2019 and our container load planning game

If you didn’t have the chance to visit our booth, here’s a short video showing how our Container Challenge game works:

Improved container weight distibution calculation, own colours and much more 19 Aug 2019

We often get asked if EasyCargo can plan container loading with regards to the weight distribution. The answer is yes, it can, and now even with an improved display of the results!

In the right panel, you simply choose the angle of your container you want to view. You will see green arrows highlighting the load ratio – if you hover over them with the cursor, three values will be displayed: the maximum allowed load, current load of the cargo, and load in an empty container (minimum load).

Another new functionality is the option to change the colour of boxes. Click on the coloured area in the item settings panel. After clicking, you will see a range of pre-defined colours to choose from. You can also enter an entirely new colour in the form of HTML code.

Another improvement is the possibility to create a public link to the loads, including those that were already saved without this link. This is done directly in the Shipments & Reports panel.

Your accounting department will surely appreciate our new overview of all orders and invoices in the Licences panel.

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 container 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 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 😉

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

It was fun presenting EasyCargo in Sweden and we can’t wait for the next exhibition: Transport Logistics in Munich, Germany which will take place from June 4th to June 7th, 2019.

By the way, we’ve localized EasyCargo into Swedish, and because of significant interest from Italy, we’ve also added Italian localization!

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 better – we’ve listened to 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 those functions!
