Cape Pack in the Cloud

Cape Pack delivers next generation palletization in the Cloud, and is the first to offer an end-to-end solution via a Cloud platform, from data input and calculations to reporting.

Additional new cloud features enable you to:

  • Save all information in the cloud for easy viewing and sharing.
  • Easily share palletization reports complete with load formatting, edited layer patterns and truck analysis data.

The new interface makes it very easy for users to make critical, up-to-the-minute, changes shareable within anyone, anywhere. As a result, you can accelerate design and approval processes and cut cycle times. Whilst at the same time building more efficient pallet patterns and optimizing cube space utilization.


This program calculates pallet patterns for fixed or known secondary package sizes.
You enter the size of the bottle, box, tray, case, bag, etc. that is to be placed directly onto the pallet. It will allow you to calculate pallet patterns on 3 different sets of pallet restrictions at one time in order to compare efficiencies.

Mixed Loading

A separate program will allow you to create Display Pallets with mixed case or tray sizes.
You can use this program for a single mixed load or you can fill a full order of items with the Order Fulfillment option.

Packaging Design

Cape Pack Advanced allows you to start with your known primary package or product size, and then design alternative shipper, tray or case sizes based on quantity, pack arrangement, orientation, and bundle requirements. You can evaluate your results including different bundle arrangements, case arrangements, divider styles and pallet loading options. This information can then be sent to ArtiosCAD or WebCenter through direct interface features.

Product Design

In addition to designing packaging for your products, Cape Pack Advanced program can also help you design or redesign your Product sizes. Starting from a known size, you can evaluate dimensional changes in your product sizing, with or without changing the volume of the product, to maximize your packaging and shipping space. Ship dramatically more in the same space.

Folding Carton Arrange

The Advanced program also includes our Folding Carton Arrange program which is designed to give Folding Carton makers a tool to help design cases for their flat folded cartons.
