Title (EN) IMPROVING EFFICIENCY OF A CARGO SHIPPING SYSTEM
(FR) AMÉLIORATION DE L'EFFICACITÉ D'UN SYSTÈME D'EXPÉDITION DE MARCHANDISES
Abstract:
(EN) Systems, methods, and software can be used to improve efficiency of a cargo shipping system. In some aspect, a cargo transportation unit (CTU) status notification is received from a cargo tracking device coupled with a CTU. The CTU status notification indicates a load status of the CTU. The CTU is determined to be ready for shipment based on the CTU status notification. Availability information associated with each of a plurality of drivers is received. A payment associated with each of the plurality of drivers is determined. A driver is selected from the plurality of drivers based at least in part on the availability information and the payment for the driver. A delivery request is sent to the selected driver.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et un logiciel peuvent être utilisés pour améliorer l'efficacité d'un système d'expédition de marchandises. Selon un aspect, une notification d'état d'unité de transport de cargaison (CTU) est reçue en provenance d'un dispositif de suivi de cargaison couplé à une CTU. La notification d'état de CTU indique un état de charge de la CTU. La CTU est déterminée comme étant prête à l'expédition sur la base de la notification d'état de CTU. Des informations de disponibilité associées à chaque conducteur d'une pluralité de conducteurs sont reçues. Un paiement associé à chacun de la pluralité de conducteurs est déterminé. Un conducteur est sélectionné parmi la pluralité de pilotes sur la base, au moins en partie, des informations de disponibilité et du paiement pour le conducteur. Une demande de livraison est envoyée au conducteur sélectionné.
