FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
(Note - There are additional FAQs topics
under "Help" in the CargoWiz program.)
Question: Why is your cargo load
planning program priced below others? Others are often in the $1,200 to
$3,500 USD range for a single user.
Answer: That is the number one question we get. The short answer is
we are newer, establishing a large user base. Major price
increases are anticipated.
But our prices will always be reasonable, we don't believe
great technology that is overpriced will endure. Our focus is "Easy
to Learn, Easy to use". We really mean it. There are many
things we don't offer because, while they are desired by the few,
they are just stumbling blocks for most users. Like loading
cylinders. Like extremely complex loading rules. (We have the main
ones of course.) If you need them maybe our competitors are right
Question: What advantages does your program
offer over others?
Answer: Some major points are:
learn. Not a little easier, a lot easier. People will really use
it! Try us first, then try the others, you will be quickly back
We save you major steps, each use!
Other programs have you: 1. Locate and open a
database, generally of all cargo or products. 2. Select cargo or
products from that database to create yet
another database for the current shipment. In CargoWiz you generally work with
the entire database, just making the quantity non-zero to
indicate a cargo item is to be part of this shipment.
automatically saves and re-opens the entire database (with quantities still set as when you
last closed CargoWiz) when you start CargoWiz again.
How convenient! Often the customer
wants you to make a small change, or the next shipment is just a
cargo and truck details) are "live".
Other programs have you enter data elsewhere, then use a "+"
button or some such thing to actually add it to the database.
Easier for their programmer, harder for you.
Others - Two steps, CargoWiz - One step.
Easily designate Loading Priorities (For stops, grouping of
orders etc.) Easily designate "Taboo On Top" for cargo that

features, but ours are done best.)

Question: Sometimes my pallets/crates/cartons are
tilted or slightly oversize. Also, some space may be needed to move
things into place, and for bent truck panels. How is this
Answer: The truck dimensions database grid has columns for
dimensions "to use", thus suggesting that you undersize to
accommodate dimensional deviations. Alternatively, cargo dimensions
could be cushioned.
Is There a limit to the number of cargo items?
Answer: No, there is no set limit. With small quantities
(hundreds) loads may be generated in seconds. When quantities get
into the thousands it may take several minutes to create a load,
perhaps more if there are many different items.
Question: I need to make adjustments to the load created by
CargoWiz, and sometimes I want to load it all my way. How do I
