Load Plan & Optimization Software
Define your cargoes data in the CubeMaster’s database so they will be available for you to load into trucks, containers, pallets, totes and ULDs. The names, descriptions, dimensions, stacking requirements, loading orientation and placement, palletization preference and more are defined at the Cargo Properties window. Just pressing the Save button stored all the changes to the Cargoes Database.
The ISO standard data are created in the trucks, containers and pallets database at the time of the installation of CubeMaster program. Not only they are modified with the Vehicle Properties and Pallet Properties window but also new sizes are added with that windows to the trucks, containers and pallets database.
Some sample data are contained in the cartons and air containers database. With pressing Edit button, all the information of carton or air containers are modified with the Carton Properties and ULD Properties window. It allows you to see the 3D graphics of the size you are editing.
Data Import with Copy and Paste
The easiest way for bring in your existing data in an Excel file is using the copy-and-paste. Open your Excel sheet and make the block on the cells you want to import to CubeMaster load.
Copy the block to your clipboard and paste them to the cargo list after returning to CubeMaster. That opens the Clipboard Preview to show the contents of the clipboard before the final importing.
Excel/CSV Import Wizard
For bring in the existing data in Excel or CSV files more seamlessly, use the Excel/CSV Import Wizard.
It allows CubeMaster to easily and accurately import cargo names, descriptions, dimensions, stacking requirements, loading orientation and placement, palletization preference and more from your Excel or CSV files.
Once the location of the Excel or CSV file is specified in the Step 1, the columns information are retrieved automatically and populated on the Step 2 for your mapping them to the properties of cargoes to be imported. Pressing Test & Preview button shows the importing preview on the Step 3 before the final importing to the cargo list.
External DBMS Import Wizard
For bring in the orders from your ERP, WMS, TMS or ordering systems, use the External DBMS Import Wizard.
It enables CubeMaster to access the external database such as MS SQL, ORACLE or DB2 and import the orders easily and accurately including the cargo names, order quantities, descriptions, dimensions, stacking requirements, loading orientation and placement, palletization preference and more.
Once the connection to the external DBMS is established by you and tested in the Step 1, the SQL command is defined which maps the cargoes properties to the columns and tables of the connected database in the Step 2. Pressing Test SQL button shows the importing preview on the Step 3 before the final importing to the cargo list.
Order Building Wizard
The Order Building Wizard will import order information including cargoes, order quantities and descriptions after combining the cargoes information found from the cargoes database and order quantities provided by you. Once the order data is inside CubeMaster, getting an optimized loading solution is just a mouse click away.
New Load from XML
CubeMaster will start a new load optimization automatically from the XML where the order and shipping information are defined in a one file. That XML file should include several tags for the list of containers and cargoes with order quantities for the new load.
This feature is quite convenient for the seamless integration with an external application if it is capable to create a XML file.
