Design And Implementation Of A Computerized Cargo Transportation Management System (a Case Study Of Super Maritime Shipping Agency, Lagos), Abstract
Project Was Out Of The Necessity To Address The Inherent Problems Encountered
By Members Of Staff ...
project was out of the necessity to address the inherent problems encountered
by members of staff of super maritime shipping Agency and their customers.
The manual process involved
in the management of cargo were critical examined and the flows noted.
The software so designed offers to a great extent, the solutions to these
problems. The project went further to ret the different techniques used
in implementing the newly design software in order to facilitate a broader
understanding of the design software by any user.

1.1STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The management of Cargo in Nigeria has over the years attracted
poor patronage as a result of errors inherent in the system. It is no
longer a new thing that loss of customers’ goods is now the order of the day,
the reasons are not far-fetched. Due to this manual procedure involved in
Cargo management, clients have no other option than to be at the mercy of these
error prone procedures.
Members of staff of supper maritime one to the registered shipping
agencies and a subsidiary of Nigerian ports plc cannot provide their goods that
is the nature of the method used in calculating the tonnage to know the amount
of money to pay as cargo fees.
The method of information storage in the company is poor.
This limits the number of official documents accessible by the customers
because the system is not capable of managing old items of information which
could be of use to be customer of anytime.
There is little or no security control system where the customers’
goods, document and classified information of the customer could be safe
guarded from unauthorized access.
1.2PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The loopholes existing in the management of cargo under the
suspicious of Nigerian ports plc and super maritime and the subsequent
solutions to these existing problems were the driving force in undertaken this
project or study.
1.3AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aims and objectives of this study is to design and implement a
computerized cargo transportation management system that will among other
thing, make provision for a detailed breakdown of the customers weight of the
goods / Cargo, quick retrieval and display of information pertaining to the
Provisions is also made to check fraud and other criminal acts
carried out by both parties involved in the transaction and this lead to
security and control. Also another aim of this study is to provide a system
that will manage the customer’s document from the port of loading to the port
of discharge with his on ground there will be no conflict between the port of
loading and port of discharge.
It is assumed that the new system will do the following:
a.the new system will create room for the client
to know all th necessary facts about the vessel, mat is, the name of the
vessel, the Nationality of the vessel and the voyage number with in the he
shortest possible time so that transactions will be an easy task for the two
b.The know the actual port of discharge and port
of loading so that the two ports will create no conflict or confusion for the
client as regard the documents to be signed and counter signed by the
client. For example, the bill of loading.
c.The new system will create an avenue where by
the measurement and Gross weight of the cargo will be known and the
commensurate fees to be paid.
d.The new system will also make all the on-line
operations carried out in cargo management in supper maritime and Nigerian
ports plc an easy task for official and staff of both establishment.
