SDS2 Load Planning

SDS2 Load Planning

3D Load Planning Software for Steel Fabricators

The new 3D truck loading solution that helps to efficiently plan loading and transportation of steel material. Reducing material handling costs and safety concerns, resulting in balanced loads and accurate loading instructions.  


Efficiency Through Change: Wyoming Fabricator Optimizes Material Handling with SDS2

Like many structural steel fabricators, Pepper Tank and Contracting Company in Casper, Wyoming, is constantly working to improve their efficiency so they can take on more projects, but their progress was hampered by bottlenecks in the loading area and challenges in training new talent—until they discovered SDS2 Load Planning. 


Traditional Load Planning is Costing You $$$

A fabricator’s #1 cost is material handling. With SDS2 Load Planning you can cut material handling in half.  

Eliminate Guesswork

SDS2 Load Planning works with IFC fabrication models to assemble loaded trailers in a 3D virtual environment. Simply upload your IFC file and create a plan to start loading trucks in less time.  



Minimize Material Handling

Produces a clear set of instructions every time, making it possible to handle each material once and place it correctly on the trailer the first time. Load the trailer based on the construction phase  to simplify the unloading and erection process.  


Provide Clear Load Maps

3D virtual loading environment provides an opportunity to review loads as a team to plan efficient fabrication and potentially cut down on the number of loads to be shipped.
