Abstract:The revolution in information processing and communication technology has transformed the logistics business and opened new opportunities. To capitalize on these opportunities one can imagine a computer system which can manage and provide decision support across all facets of the transportation and logistics function for today's complex worldwide business enterprises. This paper outlines such a system — the shipment information centre. It includes information gathering, processing and reporting from the point a shipment is ordered through its movement, delivery, the associated payment, and subsequent analysis based on its movement.
