OPT Loading: space-saving and stabilize the  load. 3D container, truck and pallet loading optimization!
OPT Loading - Loading and palletizing optimization
What are Opt Loading upside drivers look like?

Optimization techniques offering space-savvy suggestions to load operators.

Reduce costs with containers space filling and transportation-vehicles freight loading optimization.

Reach the upper limit of vehicle space exploitation while easily serving customers load requests including how their changes affect the right vehicle choices to deliver.

Optimal parcels placement amidst potential constraints including stackable, stability and clustering of a gamut of 6-sided bodies.

Building on-balance volume and weight freight/cargo.

At the forefront of logistics technology, with its 3D functionality, ACT Operations Research OPT Loading is a powerful optimization system for vehicles fleets loading including pallets and containers loads. OPT Loading provides stability and balanced weight when stacking cases of goods or products while curbing logistics costs.


Usage model
Opt Loading spots the logical loading sequence taking into account parcels depth, breath, fragility and unloading/delivery priorities. Leveraging on products list and features (e.g. dimension, volume, weight), un/loading process (e.g., costs, priority, ease-to-stack, verso), holder type (e.g. vehicle, container, pallet), OPT Loading provides with accurate loading plans.

When it comes to demanding customers requiring orders' changes or expressing particular preferences on delivery i.e., about vehicles type, or whether your loads should go to productions lines to perform manufacturing, OPT Loading helps to make optimized decisions amid constrained circumstances. ACT Operations Research ambitious customers are strongly moving further their performance by coupling OPT Loading with other products of ACT Operations Research' suite including OPT Runner (fleet scheduling) or with advanced simulation tools such as ARENA and SIMIO.


Main functionalities


  • saving costs
  • using less vehicles
  • using less containers.


  • containers weight and volume
  • parcels stackability
  • floor-resting side
  • loading side
  • downstream manufacturing process.


  • loading of different parcels' shapes
  • 3D simulation of parcels rotational motion
  • spaces between parcels and the holders' walls are considered.


Main features and add-on components

  • Load's 3D visualization
  • Build to be integrated to ERP systems.
  • .

Vertical markets

  • Logistics and Transportation (e.g. axle load-balanced fleet vehicles, palletizing to serve production lines)

ACT Operations Research technology integration and scalability

  • developed through Java technology
  • integrates with any SQL database compliant
  • integrates with ERP, TMS, WMS
  • a very powerful engine designed for parallel calculus
  • scalable for a number of CPUs.
