The main goal of the research work presented in this paper is the development of an automatic system of load hiring and information about shipment, via Internet, that facilitates the management of the commercial fleet in a road transport company. The implantation of this system in the company implies a reduction in the hard and boring work that represents to negotiate for contracts with shippers, and to provide them with information related to their shipments. The potential users of this server are: on the one hand, the companies or individuals (henceforth, the shipper) that go to a transport company to ask for the transfer of some type of merchandise and, later, request about the state of their shipment; and on the other hand the company fleet operators which can benefit from the information provided by the proposed system.
