This paper is written as preliminary information on the Information Technology Final
YearProject. The title selected for this purpose is software called Shipment Tracking for
Air Freight or simply STAR. In addition, it highlights how we can implement the
software contents and influences the user to use them. The main target user for this
project is the consignee or other party such as freighter forwarder company staff.
Currently, the only tools to keep track of each shipment send by the consignee is only
thru telex send by the station (airport). The consignee would have to call the station
support office of the air freight company in order to know the status of their shipment.
Consignee is a person or party who send the shipment. Then the office staff would have
to print the telex of the shipment. Theneed for a more rehable and fast system to display
the information is increasing. The main objective of the project is to keep track of each
shipment by logging on to specific website in the Internet. The main advantage of this
system is, it reduce the hassle of using telephone to contact the office of the air freight
company and the consignee can view the information of their shipment status anytime
and anywhere as long there is an Internet connection facility. The existing tracking
method is using less user friendly interface and not available via internet. In order to
completethis project the author has chosen to use planning-analysis-design method. It is
simple and easy to keep track of the project development. This system will be developed
using Macromedia Dreamweaver and a database to integrate all the codes and the system
interface. In conclusion it is estimated that by having this system it able increase user
satisfaction and productivity, help reduce tensions among company personnel and
become very effective tool in helping both user and support staff As for the result this
project is hope to also achieve allthe objectives.
