Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0175700A2] A system for tracking containers for customer shipments using services from third party service providers, comprising a host management system. The host management system allows third party service providers and customers to enter in accounts containing information including preferences for shipping and/or services. The customer logs into the host management system through a network interface to enter in a shipment order. The host management system allows the customer to provide information concerning the shipment to ensure that the shipment can be performed and if any special services are needed from third party service providers. The customer can either choose their own third party service providers or request quotes from third party service providers having a pre-established relationship with the host management system. The host management system receives tracking and other information concerning the shipment and automatically notifies the customer and third party service providers providing services for the customer shipment of the shipment status so that any appropriate actions needed can be reported and/or taken.
