ULD Loading Calculator

ULD Loading Calculator

An ULD Loading Calculator is an essential tool for military logistics, particularly when dealing with typically hazardous or dangerous supplies. Loading ULDs to the optimum plan, taking all available criteria in account ensures the safe and efficient transport of the maximum load of supplies and materials, creating better time and cost efficiencies.  

  • Weight and size limits for each transportation
  • Weight balance
  • Position compatibility

Planning military maneuvers is a complex series of processes, often requiring collaborative decision-making and time sensitivity. Creating the optimum plan involves detailed calculation and analysis of all factors and constraints to guarantee success. Logistics plays a critical role in military preparedness and as a result, benefits significantly from smart solutions that aim to simplify, automate and streamline these elements of the plan.

ULD loading optimization through simulation

The ULD Loading Calculator feature of CLOS military logistics software utilizes some of the most intelligent technologies and offers a new level of optimization for all types of loads. The 3D packing feature of CLOS offers maximum efficiency for ULD loading optimization, creating a plan according to geometric containment and non-overlap constraints.

The system takes all available information and constraints to produce 3D imagery with a variation in scenario. Running ULD loading simulation also strengthens the ability to cope with last minute operational or planning changes.

Considerations for ULD loading systems

In a military environment, where the movement of hazardous materials and dangerous items is an everyday operational requirement, the risks are high and careful planning is essential for both security and safety.
Recording detailed information is also an important part of a good ULD loading system. Meticulous, seamless record-keeping is an integral part of the CLOS military logistics software and the data it gathers is available in real-time to all the decision makers that need it.
The Volumetric Planning and Logistics Modelling features of CLOS ensure that ULD Loading Calculation is fast and seamlessly accurate, regardless of the content or the transportation.

What makes CLOS ULD loading calculator different?

CLOS is different from standard ULD loading software, which only handles regular shaped items. Military logistics handles an almost limitless variety of items, often bulky or irregular. Many are dangerous and require careful, specific handling and storage. CLOS is designed to deliver optimal ULD loading with adherence to stacking rules, support recommendations and maximum size and weight.

It also considers other defining factors in different environments that may affect ULD loading, such as:

  • Local regulations
  • Sourcing decisions
  • Local governance
  • Risk assessment
  • Storage constraints
  • And more.
