Compare the editions of the program

packVol STANDARD   Download now!
is the most versatile edition, designed to best fit the most common needs of load planning. The application allows processing of multiple containers simultaneously, integration with the host system, and sharing of the internal database among different installations.
packVol LITE   Download now!
is designed for the case of loading a single container and when integration or sharing of the internal database is not required. With reduced price, the application is also characterized by the absence of advanced features and of uncommon loading rules.
packVol DYNLOAD   Download now!
is the evolution of the STANDARD version for the palletized load. The application implements the load at “multiple steps” (e.g., boxes on pallets → pallets in containers), the loading from default models, the choice of the best type of container, calculation methods specific to mono-reference load units.

The optimizer is also available as a “black box” library module. To evaluate the integrable version, packVol Integrable Application, please contact us.

packVol is available in three versions because the program offers many advanced features that might, however, be oversized compared to User's needs.
Q Is there any difference in the solver of the various editions?
No, the solver is always the same. The editions differ in the loading rules that are applied during the calculation.
Q Can I change program edition after purchase?
Yes, you can upgrade edition at any time after purchase according to the path LTE → STD → DYN. It is sufficient to pay the price difference between the two editions. We do not provide with the downgrade.
