A haulage company manages the transportation of cargo from one place to another place. It requires meticulous planning for effective operations. Most of the haulage operators function in an ad-hoc manner, and are either not computerized or use obsolete technology which results in Unstructured business processes, a lot of paperwork in Requesting for Transportation, Planning and Reporting, Poor coordination between operators and their customers and Lack of Trailer Monitoring.
HCL proposes to solve the problems of haulage management and cater to the functional requirements of haulage management with a centralized, online, web based application. The system will be built using Microsoft Technology (ASP, Visual Basic) and Oracle 8i as the RDBMS.
Haulage mgmt provides services -collection, delivery, staging and diversion to internal users and registered customers. Customer uses these services for his convenience & requirements for the consignment when he place order or view bill details, planner uses to allocate, arrange or plan CDA'S for the voyage and an accountant uses for billing.
Customer place/update/cancel his orders through ROT (request of transportation) and then Cost of order is calculated as a background process. For one order there can be at most 4 CDA'S. CDA'S (jobs) are generated from job queue as a background process that is fired at periodic intervals & then CDA'S are assigned to Prime Movers.
Planning is the important area of Haulage Management System. The system allow planners to plan for the consignment of same day or the next day .The planning start at 00.00 hrs and end on 23.59 hrs. The system displays a list of CDA'S to be planned for a specific day. Master Maintenance, Prime Mover, Trailer & Driver mgmt information details are provided while planning.
Accountant manages the invoice information with respect to order & date recording the payment for an order from customer database by accountant Bill is made from customer & accountant point of view. Report is generated about commissioned or scrapped PM 'S, trailers, on status of CDA'S and bill & payment details.
The purpose of this document is to explain the System Scope, lay down the Requirement and Design Specifications of the Haulage Management System . This project is a realization of effective computerization of Haulage Management System .This system is developed based on industrial knowledge and industrial requirement of Haulage System for Haulage Management Companies .
