Load Planning

When shipping multiple items, it is important to have a load plan. The reason is that because most shipments require unique solutions and whether you are loading a truck, a sea container or even just the crate itself you need the load to be balanced, evenly distributed and optimized to each unique situation. Load planning makes for a safe journey for the equipment and for the people handling it as well.

An unbalanced load is dangerous and should be handled by experienced personal. For these reasons we have a computer-generated load planning software which ensures that the loads are balanced & evenly distributed. We input the type of container or trailer, the sizes and weights of the crates and or equipment and the computer does the rest. Not only that but it tracks where the piece / product is in the trailer or container to make it easy for identification of parts when the product arrives at its destination. It creates a packing list to keep track of all that is in the shipment.Load Planning on computer screen

It can track the weight, dimensions of all the pieces and insure you are not overweight.

We provide accurate Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Certificates to abide by the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations.

Having this information makes shipping a breeze and that’s why Butler & Baird takes care of all the details, so you don’t have to!
