Upgraded Cargo Weight module

In March of last year, we already delivered the news that the Cargo Weight module had been renewed. (  Afterwards, customers still had some questions, so we took another critical look at the program and made some extra adjustments.


  • Additional fields are shown for draft and freeboard. Calculated (or initial) values will all be displayed on screen with a remark on their status: “Calculated” or “Default”.
  • One completed draft/freeboard is enough to perform a calculation, more will of course provide a more detailed calculation. The deflection is only calculated if draughts or freeboards are specified over the entire length of the ship.


On the screen, more information is displayed about the measuring points and the location of the vessel.


This module is available for the on-board loading computer software LOCOPIAS as well as for the naval architectural calculations software PIAS.
