packVol Standard 3.7.0

An Optimization Software for Load Planning

PackVol STANDARD allows users to perform both a manual and an automatic distribution of the objects and they only need to provide the dimensions for the container or space they prefer. The utility will then compute the optimal distribution of the required objects, in accordance with their number and individual volumetric characteristics.

packVol Standard for Windows 10 - Full description

packVol is an Optimization Software for Load Planning, designed to plan the best space utilization inside containers and trucks, to help you reduce your transportation costs. It is an innovative software for MS Windows™, which has some unique features not found in other container loading software products. Thanks to its advanced optimizer, truly tridimensional, the program allows you to manage efficiently complex load planning problems.

For example, the program can define the vertical ordering of the units according to the load bearing strength (normal stress) of each item. With this feature the User can obtain realistic solutions, without the need to enter a lot of empirical rules on how items should be stacked. As a second example, the program can deal with the “Load by Ratio” (Set) load when only a subset of items are grouped, even in a multiple containers load plan.

To learn more about constraints and rules handled by our load planning software, please visit the section Loading Rules.

You can also modify or create the entire load plan manually, with the ease of a paint program. The application indeed offers you a special visual environment, which combines the standard editing functionalities (select, copy, paste, cut, undo, redo, zoom, pane, etc.) of a common 3D graphics program with a rigorous enforcement of the loading rules.

packVol is a program, written in C++, with a modern and easy-to-use graphical user interface. The size of the executable is really small, with great advantages in terms of speed and responsiveness of the application.

FEATURES:

Ability to define or modify a load plan in manual mode
Possibility of increasing the number of packages in current solution ("Start from Current")
Internal database to store data of packages and containers
Data retrieval from any external database with support for the ODBC protocol
Ability to share the internal database among different LAN-connected installations
Option to password-protect all write operations on the internal database
Import data from Excel file in native format (xls)
Vertical ordering of the load plan according to the stacking indices, max stacking, predefined positions
Vertical ordering of the load plan according to the maximum weight supported by each package (normal stress)
Control of the overlap between pairs of packages (general stack matrix)
Longitudinal ordering of the load plan according to the destination and/or to axial sections
Priority rule for the packages
Set Load - ability to maintain a fixed ratio among some items
Batch Load - ability to load packages in multiples of an assigned number
Ability to check the stability of each package, and to control the position of the center of mass of load plan
Control of maximum load weight of each container
Control of linear density and average load on container floor
Unusable section of the container
Creation of the load plan report in pdf format for each container
Ability to export all load plan reports in pdf format for all containers entering the solution in a single operation
Additional panels to manage multi container load plans
Possibility to request modifications, customizations, and extensions of functionality
