This study developed a computer-based freight forwarder. This research effort specifically sought to reduce the number of manpower needed in heavy equipment sections thereby lessening the risk of accidents. Also, the study aimed to design a device which could maximize the use of microprocessor in terms of its basic functions and internal processes.
A two-phase method was employed in this study, namely, experimental development for the experimentation and testing stages and descriptive approach for the evaluation part of the design project especially in terms of usability and practicality.
The study showed satisfactory findings. Some of which were the following: the completion of booking date, time and year of cargoes to be delivered, the operation upon arrival of cargoes, the sending of signal to the computer which confirms the station or port number the cargo is loaded and the sending back of information upon the unloading of cargo.
