Packing problems deal with loading of a set of items (objects) into a set of boxes (containers) in order to optimize a performance cri- teria under various constraints. With the advance of RFID technologies and investments in IT infrastructures companies now have access to the necessary data that can be utilized in cost reduction of packing processes. Therefore bin packing and container loading problems are becoming to be more popular in recent years. In this research we will propose a meta- heuristic based bin packing algorithm which was motivated from a real case. We will present the performance of the proposed techniques both in terms of cost and computational time. To our knowledge this paper is the first attempt that proposes a solution to 3D-MBSBPP problem.
