Packaging Logic For Shipping

It is always convenient to reduce the number of packets while shipping. We can apply any logic to create a packet, for example packing similar items in one packet , keep the packet size to a limit and many others. We look into detail how we can create packets with size less than a maximum value.
The logic we implemented in StrahmanValves is

  • 1. The packet size should not be greater than 300 lbs.
  • 2. Some items (weight around 300 lbs)with single package shipping(i.e. Only one item in a packet)

So if suppose we have 10 items of different sizes , we take one item by item, excluding the items categorized as single package shipping. On each addition of item to packet we check whether the packet size crossed the limit , if crossed we take the recently placed item from this packet and start creating a new packet and this logic continues till all the items are included in the packets. The single packet shipping items are packed as independent packets.
