More about the calculator
User friendly design
Adding an item into your container has never been easier! Just click the “Add item” button, insert the dimensions, weight, and quantity, add constraints (don’t rotate, tilt or stack), if any, and that’s it. Your item will appear in the load plan result, along with its description right on the box.
After adding all your items, you’re set to push the “Load” button. Items will be placed in the cargo space within a few seconds. Your load plan is now ready.
EasyCargo offers an extensive library of cargo spaces. However, if you work with a specific one or you’re not happy with our pre-defined spaces, you can create your own cargo space or adjust an existing one.
Easy to integrate
We offer several options to make working with EasyCargo even easier and faster.
The import from an excel file is the easiest one. Simply download our template from the software and enter all the items you want to be loaded. Then, upload this back to EasyCargo. When that’s done, push the “Load” button, and EasyCargo will calculate the final container load plan. You can also export the calculated plan back to excel for further adjustments or for sharing it with colleagues.
The second option is using our API-Interface. It automatically creates a list of load items and a list of cargo spaces and transfers it right into EasyCargo.
The newest possibility is SAP ERP. This integration allows you to transfer all the data about transported goods from SAP directly into EasyCargo. It’s done by the german company status c, and for now, it’s available in German only. However, we’re working on making it available in English as well.
The entire container plan result is shown in an interactive 3D animation. You can rotate or zoom to examine your container in detail.
One of the biggest advantages is the manual editor of the final load plan. This editor enables you to adjust the rotation and position of each box to your liking. You can also use it to create the entire load plan from scratch.
The manual load plan editor works as a Drag (click on a box and move it to the desired place) and Drop (click again to release it to its new place). The auto-snap function will make the placing much easier for you, as it makes sure your newly placed box will be aligned with other boxes in your load calculation.

Who is EasyCargo for?
Are you a provider of transportation services?
EasyCargo will help you to optimize and maximize the use of the container space loading area. Insert the quantity and dimensions of items, push the ‘Load’ button, and watch EasyCargo doing the job for you. Your load plan will be ready in the blink of an eye (usually under one minute, the time depends on how complex your load plan is).
Items can be divided into groups based on their final destination. On top of that, if you enter the weight of items, EasyCargo will verify whether the load on axles is within the legal limits.
Do you transport goods?
The EasyCargo software can create load plans for over 10 000 items of 250 different types. The constraints for each type can be set independently (e.g., do not stack or do not tilt).
A load plan result can be printed or shared online with your customers to show the optimal use of space in shipping containers.
Do you order the transportation of material for your business?
EasyCargo will show you how much cargo space you’ll need. Why pay for the whole semitrailer, when one truck can still do the job? Space is money, use EasyCargo!
