Ocean Freight Rate Database, Phase 1 Technical Report

This report describes the Access database created to automate some of the tedious work required to process information requests from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Ag Export Assistance program. The main functionalities requested for this automation project were: (1) store present and historical ocean freight rates in one central location; (2) provide a useable interface for entering data into the database; (3) automate the creation of monthly and historical reports by commodity, route, and month; (4) provide output in a format that can be easily placed on the Internet for viewing, printing, and downloading; and (5) enter all historical data from the existing Ocean Freight Rate Bulletins into the final database.
