MATH.PACK – 3D packing calculation for load carriers

If order picking requires several load carriers, or if the selection for the picking order is based on certain priorities, then a simple calculation based on the volume is often not enough.

As an alternative to this, we support a calculation process using article measurement (length, width, height) which ensures the load carrier is operating in permitted parameters and is also optimally loaded.

  • Offline and online stacking height calculation
  • Ugly items taken into account
  • Combinations and constraints (for example, animal foodstuffs and baby food may not be stored on the same pallet)
  • Packing form (can it be stacked? Or, can only be stacked in a limited manner – only those with the same shape, or not possible to stack)
  • Can it be tilted, can it be squashed together, can it be hung, etc.?
  • It will be taken into account whether objects in the order picking system which are to be stacked
  • Ensuring the pallet is stable to reduce breakages
  • Time will be saved in the store by ensuring the pallets are shop friendly
  • Using different loading aids (possible per order): roll containers, Euro-pallets
  • Maximum allowed measurements: Height, weight and protrusion of the loading aid
  • Article weight (gross- including packaging), article mass (outside of the packaging unit) and length, breadth and height
  • The centre of gravity is taken into account (as low as possible)
  • Checking whether it is possible to stack closed packaging or partly open packaging (open above)
  • Maximum length of article
  • Grouped goods taken into account
  • Packaged units kept together or detached from each other
  • Maximum carrying or load-bearing capacity of each article
  • In which direction should the article be placed (e.g., turning it on its y-axis allowed=tilt)
  • Article only on the floor or above
  • Maximum allowed height difference within the warehouse. This makes it possible to find the most stable position possible
  • Minimum contact surface (in percent) of packaged items


  • Reducing the necessary loading aids (pallets, roll containers, etc.) by increased density and the correct choice of pallets
  • Reducing breakages through higher pallet stability
  • Reducing sorting time in store by ensuring pallets are built in a shop friendly manner
