Project Motivation

  • There is a need to develop better and more efficient algorithms and associated tools for loading pallets in the most economical method to allow accurate estimate of multi-modal transport resources.

Project Objectives

Develop Efficient Algorithms

such that:

  • Constraints related to center of gravity are satisfied

  • Maximum weight is not exceeded

  • Hazard classification rules are followed

  • Preferred pallet configuration layout is achieved

  • Minimum number of pallets is used

Project Activities

  • Review and capture all current requirements

  • Develop an acceptable heuristic loading for pallet

  • Extend to multi-modal transportation loading

  • Develop a web-based interactive tool with 3D visualization

Development Methodology

Pallet Loading

  • Placement Algorithm

    • Volumetric loading

    • Pallet shape and size restrictions

    • Pyramid or rectangular pallet configuration

  • Loading Classification

    • Class and Compatibility Groups

    • Hazard Classification

User Interface Design

  • Input

    • Item information

    • Pallet weight restrictions

    • Text/Excel input

  • Output

    • Item distribution by pallets

    • 3D visualization of each pallet

    • Excel output

  • Web-Based
