What Is Load Planning Software?
Load planning software refers to computer programs that carry out functions related to packing cargo. Typically, load planning software will quickly determine the optimal way to stack freight within given dimensions.
Container packing software also factors in things like axle weight requirements, trucking regulations, and loading strategies. By minimizing the potential for human error and streamlining load planning services, Syntelic’s Load Planning software accounts for multiple factors.
How Does Syntelic’s Load Planning Software Work?
Syntelic load optimization software determines where each and every case should be placed on an outbound load. Every load is examined uniquely, based on its own particular order volume and product mix characteristics.
Load Planning uses Syntelic’s advanced optimization techniques to search through thousands of options to select the best configuration based on your business rules without the use of fixed templates. The result is a custom vehicle configuration constructed dynamically for each load.

Load Planning Software FAQ
What is load optimization?
Load optimization is the process of consolidating and arranging cargo to a container’s full capacity. Finding the most efficient load sequence will save the loader time and effort that can be put towards other tasks.
Load optimization has become a necessary part of running a delivery company. To keep up with growing delivery demands, you must maximize every opportunity to create a more efficient process.
What does a load planner do?
A load planner uses an algorithm to determine the best possible loading method for filling up your tractor trailer. It will show you how much can fit, how the cargo should be loaded, and how to distribute the weight.
Should I use software to perform load planning?
Even for situations that require complex loading patterns, a load planning software can greatly increase the efficiency of your business. Our software does not cut corners, it performs the same function as a person would in a fraction of the time. It factors in trucking regulations, weight restrictions, and many more metrics that a human could miss after repetitive tasks.
The attention to detail and speed of our program make it a great option no matter what loads you need to optimize.
What is the load optimization algorithm?
Our software searches through a variety of different options to find which is best suited to your specific situation.

What is the difference between FCL/FTL and LCL/LTL shipping?
Full container load (FCL) and full truckload (FTL) shipments are packed directly by the shipper for the carrier. This happens when a shipper can fully fill the tractor trailer and it doesn’t need additional rearranging before continuing in the process.
Less-than-truckload (LTL) and less-than-container load (LCL) shipments occur when the cargo must be packed multiple times with different items before it’s shipped. Many times this requires the help of a 3PL or consolidation company. There may be multiple stages throughout the shipment when cargo will be palletized, removed, rearranged, or added.
