Auto Start with last Shipment - saves time:
Each time you open CargoWiz it automatically loads the data file of your last shipment. For manufacturers the data file is usually all of the products they make with shipment quantities of each cargo type generally set to zero.
Just reset the quantities for the new shipment as needed and press "Load".

(With competitors - generally you must find and open a database, Then you must extract the items for the current shipment, thus creating and managing a subset of the master database. )


Built-in Truck and Container Sizes: Many popular truck and containers are built-in so you do not have to create them, you just click on the one you want to use. Or you may easily create your own.
Mixed sizes are possible, to minimize shipping costs - perhaps you fill a 40 Ft container and have some cargo left, you may choose a 20 Ft container for the balance.

User Interface Features
Tabs: Tabs are easy to understand and in CargoWiz you essentially deal with just 3 primary tabs.
You always know "where you are" in the program.
(With competitors - User interface can be confusing.)
Tabs makes learning the container loader easy!
Color keyed Column Heads make it simple:
Note the pink and blue column heads. The pink designates required data while the blue is optional.

You don't have to supply much
If you use the Excel Import Template you can enter just length, width, and height and CargoWiz will auto-generate any other required values for you. A great time saver for freight forwarders and others.

Two Load Views -Top and Angled
Load Plan
You can also click to view from the left angle.
(Our Competitors - just one view at any time)

Stage Area: Lets you graphically see loading progress and quickly see what items are left out.
(Our competitors - no stage)



Cargo Labeled:Cargo Load Plan

In the "Advanced Views" Window you can see the cargo labeled with either the part number, short ID or description.

 You can also zoom in and rotate the image.
(Few competitors have labels)
 



Units Inside column
 Calculates how many widgets in the container, not just how many boxes of widgets.
This is handy if you deal with the total quantities within boxes, not just the number of   boxes. It calculates the totals. Example 100 boxes, 12 widgets per box (the units inside), so CargoWiz totals 1200 for you.




Magic ID - Cargo Under Mouse:
See how the truck or container is loaded.

Details of the Cargo under the mouse pointer are displayed on screen. Even works for cargo on the stage.

(Few competitors have anything similar)










Repeatedly clicking the Draw Steps button permits viewing loading steps, thus revealing cargo hidden in the full view.

Logistics software Cargo to be loaded first. Cargo to be loaded 2nd. Cargo to be loaded 3rd.Cargo to be loaded 4th, and so on.  (rest not shown)

Accepts both Dots and Commas as Decimal Delimiters:

A dimension can be entered, for instance, as "95.50" or "95,50", the latter being the method in many European countries.

Importing Your Data
Option 1.Type it directly into the Cargo Grid
The grid is effectively the database of cargo.
Option 2. Easy Import using our Excel Template. This is the easiest and most popular method when there are many products or cargo types. You copy your data to the clipboard from any source that permits it. Usually it is your own Excel sheet, but could also be a database or even a Word document. Paste it into our Excel template and click "Submit". It checks that your data is acceptable (such as that dimensions do not contain letters) then transfers it to the Cargo Grid where you can save it.
Watch a short How-to-Import Video:
YouTube Drag Cargo video


Option 3. Link to your ERP, WMS or business system.
This requires that you have a programmer familiar with your system write a small amount of code to create a file for you to open with shipment data from your system. We provide all the needed information.

Should you need further assistance or expanded capabilities we can put you in touch with an experienced and highly capable consultant. Contact support@softtruck.com.
