International package shipment data
Project start/end: 01.02.2000 - 31.08.2003
Creating and maintaining database software for exchanging data with international partners using the vertical Alice file format.
Creating software: for reading in preliminary data for import shipments; for reading in scan data for export shipments, while combining package scans into shipment events; for outputting scan data for import shipments, while splitting shipment events into package scans; for outputting preliminary data for export shipments.
The delivery service exchanges preliminary information about the shipments and the packages contained in the shipments and daily status information at the shipment and/or package level with the international partner companies in the vertical Alice file format agreed upon for this purpose. With these details (weight and dimensions) about the packages, the recipient can optimize the scheduling of the runs.
