Wandalute: An efficient online application for staff-transport logistics management.
Although we have significantly advanced in technology over the decades, there is still a reliance on conventional approaches to handling logistics. With a focus on the transportation of staff members out-of-office, this paper proposes an online application called Wandalute to ease the process a transportation logistics officer undergoes when assigning drivers to staff members who have requested office-owned transportation in fulfilling office duties. Wandalute is a Chitumbuka (Malawi native) word which means "They haven't left" . It is time for PLAN Malawi's staff members to request office transportation void of a cumbersome process that previously existed, which involved back and forth phone calls. This work intends to create a web-based application that would manage transportation requests made. The goal is also to address Sustainable Development Goals 8 and 9, which entail economic growth, and industry and infrastructure, respectively, through utilizing the company s transport resources.
