Design and Implementation of Computerized Goods Transportation System

Filed in Articles by on December 1, 2022


This project is to address the problems encountered by the staff of custom and their customers. In view of these problems, the manual process involved in the handling and management of goods in custom office were critically studied and the problems noted. This project went further to treat the different techniques used in implementing the newly designed software.

This work is conducted towards the computerization of the existing system of processing data in order to identify some various problems that is being encountered in the mechanical aspect of it and the manual method of data processing in the billing of imported and exported customer goods,

and thereby recommending the first-class solution to the problem of information system in the organization.

This theory also compares the existing system with the new system which is an exact and faster way of processing data and the problem that is faced by customers when they are clearing their goods from the wharf.

This theory includes the implementation, programming, test run, change over the process of the new system. The software is designed using visual basic 6.0 language. This language was chosen as a result of its easy syntax and structure for developing windows-based applications.

Computer plays a vital role in the development of any company, it also solves some of the complex problems faced by man and processed voluminous data within a short period of time or at a fantastic speed.

Recent emphasis on information and data processing in most of our business and shipping industries has grown vastly as in the case of super manifest shipping company Lagos that an alternative method has to be mechanical handling of data, preparing of freight, manifest, etc.

Super maritime shipping company is a company which handles the clearing and forwarding of goods, importation of goods and undertakes the clearing of shipping documents and goods within the vessel leaves,

the port for a designated warehouse as the clients of the company wishes computer technology has come to be accepted as an indispensable innovation in the shipping system.

It is an all-purpose machine that accepts data as input and processes it using a set of information given out result as output which can be retrieved for future use.
