Loading System (ALS)
delivers computerized load planning.
Load any size or shape of container: trailer, van, aircraft
and railcar. 3-D graphical results allow you to see the
position of every product on the pallet and in the container,
before any product is handled!
Volume Utilization in vehicles is maximized.
Axle Weights are computed to ensure the vehicle will pass
at the scales, while boosting payload weights to more
than 47,000 pounds.
Product Arrangement is optimized by enforcing product
stacking limits, orientation, sequence by drop location,
and priority loading rules.
Throughput Rates improve 15 to 25% because loading sequence
is known before any items are handled.
and Container Databases
item dimensions and weight are used to calculate accurate
load results. Product stacking rules (top load, bottom load,
stacking limit) and payload weight limits are some of the
information in the item and container databases.
contains actual dimensions and weight, stacking
rules, orientation and position. Define cubic and cylindrical
trucks, railcars, and containers, including unloadable void
spaces (roll-up door, 'step' in a stepvan). Also has vehicle
pool information (quantity and vehicle loading priority).
mixed load pallets can be automatically built by the
System. ALS builds
pallets using an expert rule set to:
stack products to minimize damage
each item for easy loading and unloading
in order of drop location
and distributes products so the net weight on each axle is
within specified limits, providing optimal load distribution.

Payload Axle Weights
calculates kingpin and axle weights to produce accurate "street
legal" loads. Heavy freight will weigh out before it
cubes out. ALS arranges product
so the net weight on each axle is within specified limits
and the load is optimally distributed.
