INTERMODAL CARGO CONTROL SYSTEM FOR THE PORT OF SAN FRANCISCO
The system described in the report represents an effort to convert a number of general manual procedures into an integrated formal on-line computerized system for intermodal control in the Port of San Francisco. The system concept is to standardize and integrate the data transferral efforts of steamship lines, rail and motor carriers, freight forwarders and Customs House brokers by remote access to a central data bank. The simultaneous conduct of another study which took as its point of departure the operations of the ocean carrier rather than the port led to a merging of conclusions of the two efforts in the Phase I report on the Shipping Operations Information System (NTIS Order No. COM 73-10765 and 10766).
