Where is my cargo?

It is quite clear that transportation is not an end itself, but a means to an end, the goal being to deliver specific cargo to the right place at the right time. With goods traveling very long distances there came necessity to trace their location to stay sure that the carriage is performed normally. In my previous post I described software which allows to specify the location of containers. But transporting doesn't mean using ships only, it also involves railways, trucks and planes and our IT solution called Where is my cargo allows to take into account these modes of transport.

This is how our Schedule & Routings system works



Before starting any description, I should say that you must be a registered user on our website.
So, after completing registration click "Virtual office"-> "Contacts" to start working with this system .


After that you'll see a list of your contacts. For your own convenience you may store them in specific folders.


In my example there are a couple of contacts already created. To create a contact, click on the orange button and fill in the data required:


After that you will be able to create bookings, namely plotting various routes. To start, click on the small box next to the necessary contact and select "Create new booking".


Fill in the booking number and double-click on the row.


Route points can be added in the "Schedule" table below. Coherently specify the locations which the cargo will pass, choose the shipping type (mode of transport which will deliver the cargo there) and enter due dates.



Voila! The whole route appears on the map, showing you the route, current cargo position and route direction. In my case the cargo is carried by rail from Diyarbakir to Istanbul, Turkey, then by air from Istanbul to Dunkirk, France, by sea from Dunkirk to New York, USA and by truck from NY to Springfield, Missouri.



Apart from tracking cargoes you can also calculate the possible revenue and set currency exchange rate.




As you can see, Where is my cargo is rather convenient and simple in use. Wanna try it? Go for it :)
