Cargo services are used to organize and track inbound and outbound shipments at airlines, rail or truck terminals, or at ship docks. They take orders from customers and make arrangements for picking up the cargo or freight, delivering them, and loading them onto the platform.
They keep track of everything and record the number, type, weight, size, destination, and time of delivery, among others. There are many companies like Pangea Network which provide cargo network services.
