Cargo Manager Systems

Export Cargo Manager

From a single user to a multi-user office, the Cargo Manager is a cost effective and practical web solution to automate an NVO operation. More NVOCC export transactions have been processed using the Cargo Manager System than any other software application on the market.

Features

Rate Quotes
When your customer calls for a rate quote, simply select the rate quote screen and a quote can easily be created and faxed directly to the customer. Often, your customer will receive the quote while still on the phone - a very effective sales tool! Also, the rate quoted to the customer can come forward with all detail information at the time of booking. Rate quotes can quickly be retrieved by customer, commodity, destination, date or range of dates. The quotes can be displayed on the screen or a report can be printed. Since the Cargo Manager automatically assigns a rate quote number, there is no need to keep a manual log.
Bookings
Booking module was designed so that all data entered at the time of booking comes forward to the bill-of-lading - in effect, the b/1 is being processed at the time of booking. Also, if a rate was quoted against that booking, type the quote number and all of the data entered at the time of quoting comes forward to the booking screen. For hazardous cargo bookings, the Cargo Manager produces the hazardous form which can be faxed directly to the customer from the booking screen. Also, if trucking arrangements are being made by the NVOCC, the Cargo Manager produces a pick up request which is faxed directly to the trucker from the booking screen. Much of the b/1 is completed when the booking is made. There is no duplication of data entry throughout the Cargo Manager - data moves forward from rate quotes to booking to receiving to documentation.
Warehouse Receiving
A warehouse management system within the Cargo Manager enables the NVOCC to keep inventory of all lots received, produce inventory reports, create the container load plan. If the shipment was booked, simply enter the booking number at the time of receipt and all of the data from booking comes forward to the receiving screen. Other features within the Cargo Manager's warehouse include cargo measurements, print labels, fax confirmation to the customer on receipt, as well as complete control over hazardous cargo to assure that incompatible lots are not loaded into the same container.
Documentation
The Cargo Manager produces every document needed for an NVOCC operation - house and line bill-of-lading, shipper's export declaration, certificate of origin, customer invoice, and various manifests. As a totally integrated system, enter the lot or booking number and all of the booking data comes forward in the documentation process. Cargo Manager also has a direct interface with CMS's Rate Manager where one can retrieve or create a tariff filing.

Need to know about the shipment - when it arrived at the warehouse, the container it was loaded, bill-of-lading details, etc., no problem. Easy-to-use look up fields by shipper, lot number, b/1, and more.

Validation Tables
The "heart" of the Cargo Manager, the validation table is used for setting up codes for customers, locations, charges and various counters used throughout the system.
