My client is a Freight Forwarder based in Australia. This spec is a little detailed, but for those who have done a freight forwarding site, it will make sence.
** Please only reply if you have DONE a freight forwarding or Transport companies website that has freight rates. YOU WIL NEED TO PROVIDE A GUEST LOGIN / PASS to see the ecommerce coding you have built. I only want to see freight / transport URLS in your portfolio.
DO NOT Just copy paste your company blurb with URLS that do not relate to freight forwarding or transport, or they will be flagged as NOT Interesting. I will rate the others from 0-10 on effort in replying to this post.
1st priority, it will be an advertising space for the client with - Header Tabs [Services - About Us - Online tools - Contact Us]
A FLASH style header and menu would be favorable. I like all data on one page, with DHTML tabs that flow from left to right. This is required within 14 days of acceptance. (no eCommerce for stage 1)
The site will require the use of a VERY professional template in relation to Airfreight / Aircraft / Shipping / Transport.
The site will have:
CMS for all pages / images / rates / clients / trading partners / client rates / tariff rates / freight rates / local and over seas rates. Each of these tables can be specified in more detail.
Client side login / pass - Holding all the standard Client information
including delivery addresses. There will be a choice of forms they can fuill in using their data. Eg. credit application, client referral form, online letter of authority
Online quote - based on form submission and SQL of data to POST back to a result page (that becomes a quote).. The client will enter the required fields, our databases, will suggest the method of shipping (air / Loose container / Full Container or Break Bulk )
All quotes or bookings are held in a record. seen by client and admin
The client can then choose what happpens next [the flow] Quote, booking, cartage, notification, tracking, delivery, download invoice.
Cargo Bookings - This page submits data to the forwarders internal system. We will provide the EDI format of this (Flat file or UNediFACT Standard, CUSCAR message)
Client can request from the booking - Request for [empty container, Pickup cargo]
Tracking system (based on a TEXT based data feed via smtp, and later FTP)
SQL Query to email function - (for alerting etc..)
REPORTS - Client can compare costs of shipments
client tools – (see below)
Referral system for clients to earn discounts.
