CargoNet reduces the time frame required for an efficient shipment by incorporating a centralized database which stores and distributes data in real time over a secure network spread across the globe with an easy to use web based application as Front End. This enables efficient co-ordination of operations and finance all across your departments and branches in completing the documentations quickly and without those costly errors which would otherwise have resulted in loss of revenue and precious Customer Time. For example if the shipment is moving from Mumbai and the operations documentation is in Delhi , your Delhi Branch can raise the Job and related documents in Delhi and BL can be raised in Mumbai Branch in a matter of minutes and the shipment from Mumbai happens as though the entire documentation has happened in one place. This dramatically increases your efficiency in handling shipments
In the good old days when CargoNet was not yet introduced, people created a job in Excel, took a print, sent it to Accounts Department to Re-Enter the same for raising an invoice, sent an email to the Customer by attaching the Documents. Once they got payment this is sent to Mumbai office by Courier. There it is processed and the shipment would finally leave and the Customer would have a breath of relief that his shipment finally has departed. Imagine the Cost you have incurred and in case of any delay further costing and in case of errors another additional cost. Now all the procedures are replaced with CargoNet. This single tool has eliminated the lengthy procedure and those unwanted cost by the power of being a web based application.

to view and download their shipment related Documents quickly

would have otherwise slowed down the communication process.
