Web based Cargo Manager System
Cargo Manager is a comprehensive cargo management module, designed for addressing the areas of General cargo, Bulk cargo operations through Aviation. All the aspects of cargo like documentation handling, movement, and storage are addressed in this module. The key features included in this project are: General Cargo Booking (Manifestation of cargo), Storing of Cargo (actual cargo weight, volume etc. are recorded), Generating the gate pass for bringing the cargo into the warehouse, Marking the truck exit, Delivery order for rejected or damaged cargo, Generating gate pass for redelivery of cargo, House keeping movements for maintenance i.e., moving the cargo from one place to another, Extensive report and querying facilities and Creation of master like cargo agents, commodity master.

Managing the Data
The fundamental building blocks to cargo revenue maximization begin with sufficient, reliable and accessible data. Full air waybill capture is a good starting point. The waybill history should be stored in an accessible format in a database that can be updated daily.
The real challenge is not just to capture the complete life cycle of a shipment from original booking through to invoicing, but to do so in a dynamic and timely way. With new developments in data handling and communications, it is now possible to build a data warehouse that receives seamless, real time updates from reservation systems and with minimal changes to existing systems.
Shipment dimensions cannot be given accurately at the time the booking request is made. Often the actual dimensions received at tender do not anyway become part of any permanent record. Since flights will reach their volume limitations before they hit weight limits on some sectors, some heuristic calculation, such as a density code, is needed to forecast likely volumes. The first step is to use historic data to gauge the total market demand regardless of the airline’s available capacity. This unconstrained demand is set for each product type by origin and destination (O&D), day of week, time of day.
Most cargo customers, unlike passengers, are more concerned with speed and reliability than with routings. That gives the cargo carrier an opportunity to route shipments away from congested bottlenecks and give a better spread of revenues across the network.
For example, a booking request comes through the reservation center to ship between a hub airport and major destination. The route is consistently oversold, so the bid rate is high. The router will evaluate alternative feasible routes which meet both the shipper’s requirements and the carrier’s business rules.
Removing the Politics
Effectively, the cargo revenue optimization system will allow decisions to be taken that make optimal use of another, then the choice will not be made. There will be times when the users override the system’s decisions, but overall it provides the basis for objective network-wide decision-making, taking away the guesswork and the politics.
CARGOMANAGER requires user entry of container and product dimensions, together with information on weight and orientation constraints. In-built database facilities for up to 50 containers and 4000 products are provided so that input into these screens can be carried out with minimal effort. If information for a particular product code is already held in the 4000 product database then this is automatically entered into the appropriate fields.
The first of these will attempt to pack as much of the cargo using any of the packing methods available to CARGOMANAGER. This may be a loading from the floor or from the end of the container. The second and third options are self explanatory and the one most appropriate to the practical circumstances should be selected.
Once input is complete, a summary of input information is provided (which might result in a user deciding to return to add items to the consignment), before the (optional) saving of the data file, and the subsequent packing of the cargo is carried out.

ADMINISTRATOR MODULE :
CARGO MANAGER requires as input details of the cargo items forming the load and of the available container / containers (or truck, trailer, frame pallet etc.) which might be used for the load. Much of this information relates to dimensions and weights, and additional information can optionally be provided on the characteristics of each cargo item type (fragility, layering constraints etc).
- LOGIN MODULE :
This module will provide Registration, forgot password, change password pages to the user.
- USER MODULE :
This module will provide inbox for the user to view the messages from the administrator. It also provides to view the status of your cargo. This module also provides to cancel the cargo.
