User's Guide

Cargo House is the Global Interactive Information-Communication System of Portals for transport and foreign trade. It enables any logistic providers - shipowners and ship's operators, exporters and importers, charterers and freight forwarders, ports and stevedoring companies, ship brokers and ship agents, etc. - to interact in every area of the world within one Transport Network.

The System is fully self-regulated by users themselves. Each user of the System creates and regulates his personal database, which consists of user's demand and supply offers, registration data, contact details, information about the company and departments. The regulation is effected from user's personal place "Main Page" and means the following operations: enter, add, update, edit, view, show, hide, delete, send, etc.

Bearing in mind the global interactions between users of the System, each user would need to agree to Cargo House universal code of conduct and ethics based on honesty and integrity. That would enable the creation of Transport Network, where each member will comply with a level of service and will be avoided from unreasonable and unreliable business.

CARGO HOUSE PORTALS

Cargo House consists of several independent but at the same time related portals:
- "Freight exchange",
- "Services to ships in ports",
- "Stevedoring and warehousing",
- "Overland carriages"(under construction).

All portals have similar structure and function the same way.
After registration the user receives password which allows him to access and work in one or several portals.
