Condor

The CONDOR Despatch Management System is an MS-Windows based computer software package suitable for any organisation that uses the services of Transport Companies. CONDOR is specifically designed for despatch personnel, is easy to learn and simple to use.

CONDOR allows users to enter and maintain consignment details, print bar coded address labels, consignment notes and freight manifests. Transport costs are automatically calculated by selection of Carrier, service level, location or type of freight being shipped. Details are recorded for later analysis. Pallet movements, both inwards and outwards, can also be recorded. CONDOR is easily integrated with other computer systems using its industry standard (DOMEDI) Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) interface. Consignment details can be electronically transferred to other systems.

Consignment Note Processing
Consignment details such as carrier, service level, senders address, receivers address, department/cost centres, weight, items, cubic dimensions and special instructions can be entered. Regular sender, receiver, department, and types of freight are catered for to assist and speed up data entry. Facilities to handle insurance, dangerous goods, foodstuffs, pallets and product lines are also provided. Charges are automatically calculated, displayed and recorded for each consignment. Consignments already entered can be accessed for inquiry and or adjustment purposes. When entering consignment details this function will detect any similar consignments already entered, display a warning and allow the user to add the new details to the existing consignment. A consignment can be broken up into different Customer References.

Accounts can be sent to a third party other than the sender or receiver of the goods. View an audit trail of all changes to the consignment. Allows for itemising of sub components

Consignment Label Printing
As consignment details are entered, stick-on labels can be printed, for attachment to the freight itself. Allowance for multi part consignments is provided (e.g. 1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3)

There are several different label formats available.

New labels can be designed to fit in with the customerís needs.† If you need to print information on pre-printed labels then a specially formatted printout can be added to the database.

Manifests
A detailed manifest listing consignments can be printed after entering freight details. A range of selection criteria and sort options is provided to allow users to easily list the appropriate information in the correct order. Controls are in place to ensure that consignments aren’t printed on different manifests.

Pallet Control Processing
The number and type of pallets associated with an outward-bound consignment can be entered as part of entering freight details. A count of the number of pallets is automatically updated and an audit trail of all pallet movements is maintained and can be recalled and reviewed for later analysis.

A separate function is provided to record the number and type of inward bound pallets.

Rate Maintenance
A comprehensive on-line rating or charging facility is built. It allows rates to be set-up and tailored to different customers’ needs. Area, service, weight, item and product based charges can be maintained easily. Additional charges or surcharges can also be maintained.

Each client’s rates can be kept up to date easily using the EDI interface, which transfers any changes electronically to each system ensuring consistency and integrity of rating data.
