Getting highest occupancy rate of capacity of a container is very important for the companies, which deals in shipping or has shipping as a part of their main activities. They have to fit 3D boxes in container with optimum or nearest to optimum placement in order to ship more products with a minimum cost. The problem of fitting the boxes which is different from or the same to each other into a big container in optimum level, is called 3-dimensional packing problem. In this problem, the main objective is to minimize used container volume or wasted container space. This provides the reduction of costs in shipments with the use minimum number of containers.
