Hello all,

need help loading cargo pallets on a truck and how many truck will be needed.

example all trucks have max 5 spaces for pallet sizes.
Pallet A takes up 3 spaces on the truck
Pallet B takes up 2 spaces
Pallet C takes 1 space
Max space per truck is 5 after which will need additional truck.

can’t get my head round how to arrange excel ?
On a average day we can have up to 40-50 pallets all varied sizes,
Appreciate any help
Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December
