What is Goodloading?
Goodloading is an application that helps you plan the arrangement of loads in any cargo space
How does the application work?
“The user’s task is to add data about the loaded space to the application, which can be a vehicle, sea or air container, or a pallet. Then, loads are added by manually entering their dimensions or importing an Excel type file. The application uses several algorithms to propose the most optimal arrangement of loads.
The project with arranged loads is visible in a 3D visualization, and if needed, the user can manually adjust the arrangement of loads. A detailed guide on how to use the application can be found on our website.
What are the technical requirements of the application?
The application works in the browser, on every computer (also linux and MacOS) with Internet access. All you need to do is visit www.app.goodloading.com. The minimum screen width is 1260 px.
Is it possible to download the application on a computer to use it offline?
Currently, the application can only be used through a web browser.
What is the difference between the freemium and PRO version of Goodloading?
In the freemium version the user can work with dimensions of loads and cargo space available in the application. In the PRO version the user can add custom dimensions of vehicles, containers, pallets or loads.
Is there a mobile version of the application?
For comfortable use of the application, a minimum screen size of 13 inches is recommended. Users can log into the application on a mobile device to access their saved projects, but they cannot make any changes. When sharing a completed project, it can be previewed on smartphones without the need for a Goodloading account.

How do you solve problems?
The application does not load, display correctly or the project does not load for a long time
1. The most common reason for issues with the application is related to the web browser. Goodloading is optimized for use in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
2. The performance of the application may be affected by having a large number of tabs open or the browser being heavily loaded with simultaneous video streaming.
3. If too many loads are added to the project, insufficient RAM may cause problems. In such cases, we recommend opening the application in incognito mode and closing the project.
4. You can disable certain features in Goodloading that may slow down the application. More information on this topic can be found here.
5. If the problem persists after following the above steps, please contact us at email@example.com for further assistance.
Where can I report a problem with the application?
Issues with the application or registration can also be reported by contacting us through the form at <link> or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the app's loading functionality work?
Is it possible to stack one load on another?
Yes. If you know that a load can be put on top of another one, select the stacking option. Different groups of loads with the option of stacking will also be stacked among themselves.
Stacking can be limited to a certain number of layers or a maximum weight of the loads to be placed on top of each other.
Can I decide in what order will the goods be arranged on the trailer?
If you want the program to consider the loading sequence, enable the “Arrange according to the order of adding” option in the algorithm settings.
The program will arrange goods according to the order of adding them to the loading list. Their order can be modified by moving particular groups of goods on the list.
Can the program import the loading list from MS Excel/csv file?
Yes, to import loads from a file, you need to go to the “Project” tab and click on the “Import from file” icon. Instructions and a sample CSV or XLSX file will appear. You can copy and paste data from a spreadsheet into the template or create a file that matches the provided template, ensuring it is saved as CSV or XLSX. Then, import the file into the program. The bulk-added loads will be immediately added to the load list and displayed in the visualization.
Can I rotate objects and change their positions by myself?
Yes, by dragging the selected loads on the visualisation with the mouse, you can change the position of a given load. I
Additionally, when right-clicking on a specific load, additional options such as stacking, rotating, shifting, or deleting the cargo will appear.
Is it possible to define other loads than cuboid ones?
Yes, in addition to cubic loads, you can also add pipes and barrels to the application.
Is it possible to change the naming of loads?
Names of particular groups of loads are added automatically – names of loads and vehicles can be freely changed by clicking the three dots located next to loads on the list of added loads.
Is there an option to add cargo names to visualisation?
Yes. To add load names on the visualization, you need to go to the load settings located on the top bar. You can select the option to display names when hovering the mouse or display them permanently. Enabling this option may slow down the application, so if you are working with a large number of loads, it is recommended to disable the display of names by default and enable it only when needed.
Can I arrange the loads diagonally?
Yes. To rotate a load diagonally, right-click on the load and choose the option Rotate along the X or Y axis. With the left mouse button pressed, you can then rotate the cargo horizontally or vertically.
How does the app's loading space functionality work?
Is the application suitable for optimisation of loads arrangement in other spaces than a semi-trailer (e.g. container, box?)
Yes. In the application, you can load trailers, sea containers, air containers, and pallets.
How does the app's sharing and printing functionality work?
Can I somehow share the view of loaded space to another person/driver?
Yes, the load preview can be shared with others, just click on the share button. This option generates a link that can be copied and sent to another person – in result, you can work together on adjusting the arrangement of freight to some internal requirements. To be able to edit the shared loading, you need to have a Goodloading account.
How to print the arranged load?
The arranged load should be downloaded as a PDF file and then printed.

What is Goodloading API?
API is a method used for integration of the Goodloading application with another management system. It allows for the use of calculation and visualization functionalities offered in Goodloading while working with tools such as TMS, WMS or ERP.
Who is Goodloading API for?
Goodloading API is dedicated to people who use some external systems such as TMS, WMS, ERP or route planners and would like to have access to Goodloading within these systems.
API is also intended for software manufacturers who want to offer the Goodloading functionality to their clients.
What functions can I use within Goodloading API?
The service of integration with Goodloading allows for obtaining calculations of free/occupied LDMs as well as arranging loads within a given cargo space (vehicle/container/pallet or others). Apart from dimensions and weight, the algorithm used for calculations can also include factors such as object names, cargo space dimensions, load stacking, number of layers for the selected group of loads, the rotation method, priority of arranging loads or space capacity. It is also possible to partially indicate whether the designed project does not exceed axle loads if the rules for spacing and payload capacity are described. All the values that can be taken into account in calculation are listed in the documentation.
What systems can be integrated with Goodloading API?
The integration is possible with TMS, WMS, ERP and SAP systems as well as route planners.
Where can I request integration with API?
