Gower Optimal Algorithms Ltd ceased trading at the end of August 2018 following the retirement of two founding directors. We have found a team of like-minded people to take on our legacy. Miralis Data are, like ourselves, data scientists focused on optimisation in the logistics world.

Gower Optimal Algorithms Ltd (GOAL) staff provided for over 30 years quality logistics software solutions to companies worldwide. See what some of our clients think about our products.

GOAL first demonstrated personal computer based pallet loading solutions at international logistics events as far back as 1980 (pre the IBM pc!), and the whilst our modern windows products bear little relation to the software offerings at that time what does remain constant is the optimality and practicality of the solutions obtained.  

Cheaper software products can be found on the Internet, but remember - What is the use of having pallet loading software which may not, in fact, maximise pallet fill and also not answer the questions YOU need it to!!. Our products have a proven pedigree second to none - both in companies worldwide and in the international scientific literature.

Reliable, stable, high quality windows based applications for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7/8, Windows 10.
