Q1: How does LoadMaster realize accurate loading? (From Function and business process)
A1: From the perspective of function, LoadMaster fully simulates some common situations in on-site loading.
1) Carton expansion: It can be simulated by setting the placement interval or the reserved size of the container.
2) Automatically elude the corner castings of the container.
Based on the above functions, accurate loading can be achieved.
From the perspective of business process, the Business Department communicate the order and container occupancy status with customers by using LoadMaster at first; and then the generated 3D loading diagram is sent to the Warehouse Department for on-site loading guidance. In this way, the production is made according to the order, and all cargoes can be loaded over. Therefore zero inventory is easily realized.
Q2: How does LoadMaster realize scientific loading?
A2: LoadMaster simulates the situation of carton expansion, placement interval by manual work, corner castings of container, COG balance analysis, limit the section size, etc. to realize scientific loading. In addition, the loading step in the generated solution can correspond to the on-site operation completely. And users can also use “manual edit” function to adjust some steps according to the demand. which helps enhance the feasibility of on-site operation.
Q3: How does LoadMaster realize early and fast customs declaration?
A3: The generated solution can not only be used to do the documents, but also guide the on-site loading through its detailed 3D loading image, by which the packing list information is consistent with the actual loading information, and delivery and customs declaration are processed in parallel, ensuring the accuracy of early customs declaration. Moreover, the placement position of the goods can be located quickly by the 3D loading diagram so as to improve the efficiency of customs declaration.
Q4: How does LoadMaster make the packaging and transportation process manageable and controllable?
A4: The trade personnel can calculate an accurate loading plan when communicating orders with customers, and send the 3D loading diagram to the Warehouse and Logistics Department to accurately arrange containers and supervise the loading process. Therefore the standardization and transparency of the loading plan can be guaranteed. The on-site operators only need to load according to the steps of the plan (reducing excessive reliance on the on-site master), and the shipping plan can be centralized stored, facilitating subsequent cargo trace process.
Q5: How does LoadMaster realize the consideration of cargo weight?
A5: 1) Define the “stacking orders” of the different goods according to the different carrying capacity;
2) Define whether the goods are allowed to support others under different load orientations.
3) Define the heavy cargo must be loaded at the bottom of the container.
In addition, LoadMaster can also display the COG position and deviation size of the container. If the deviation is too large, the manual editing function can be combined to adjust the position of the cargo to ensure the balance of the COG of the container to avoid cargo damage.
Q6: How does LoadMaster improve the efficiency of on-site loading?
A6: With a detailed 3D loading solution, the on-site operators only needs to load according to the step, and it also avoids the phenomenon of reloading because the cargoes cannot be loaded over so that the loading time is extended. According to customer feedback, on-site tally time can be shortened by at least 1 hour by using LoadMaster.
