A 3D visualization will give users an understanding of exactly how much cargo can be loaded and stacked for shipment. Users can adjust cargo by moving, rotating and stacking objects to optimize loading space inside the shipping container.
The cargo visualization will show important data such the number of loaded cargo, the total weight of the load, the volume of all loads and the amount of free cubic meters.
When the loading calculation is complete, the finished project can be shared with a 3rd party, or printed and saved.
