  • Patent number: 11847609
    Abstract: Systems and methods change a user interface for the purpose of pairing a shipping container with an item that is intended to be shipped in the shipping container. Example embodiments include a machine-implemented method for accessing a shipping request, detecting a radio signal from a candidate container using a radio receiver, detecting an impact between a pairing device and a query container using an accelerometer, determining that the query container is the candidate container, and generating a shipping record that correlates the shipping container and the item. The device can further determine that the query container is the candidate container based on the signal strength and change in signal strength of one or more signals. The device can further detect an impact between the pairing device and the query container by ranking one or more sets of acceleration data collected by the accelerometer.

  • Patent number: 11823117
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for optimizing delivery modes used to transport items to a customer. A delivery optimization system includes an online ordering system, a delivery mode optimizer, an order allocator, and a ship label and manifest generator. The delivery mode optimizer selects an optimal shipping mode based on information received from carriers. The lowest cost option to deliver the goods to the destination by a promised delivery date is selected at the time the order is received. A shipping node is selected that can supply the items needed to fulfill the order within the desired timeframe. The delivery mode is reevaluated after the order is prepared for shipment to determine if available shipping options have changed.

  • Patent number: 11748837
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a cargo revenue management system and method that increases the efficiency of cargo revenue management by increasing the prediction accuracy of cargo volumes that customers will tender in order to generate more efficient decisions to accept or reject cargo bookings. The provided system accomplishes this increased efficiency by identifying cargo volumes that customers arbitrarily book when an actual volume is unknown as disguised missing values and deemphasizing such values in the prediction of a cargo volume that will be received. The provided system additionally utilizes machine-learning models trained on a combination of features to predict a cargo volume that will be received for a particular cargo booking. Based on the predicted cargo volume that will be received, the system generates a decision of whether to accept or reject the cargo booking to maximize revenue generation.

  • Patent number: 11580460
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for replacing a listing of a canceled booking for a guest user. In an embodiment, an accommodation management system receives an indication that a booking by the guest user has been canceled. The system retrieves, from an attribute database, attributes of the canceled listing and maps each attribute to a set of similar attributes in an equivalence table. The system retrieves, from a listing database, a set of comparable listings, each of which includes one or more of the mapped similar attributes and available during the same time period as the canceled booking. The system books one of the comparable listings for the guest user during the time period by populating a booking data structure with a connection between the comparable listing and the guest user.

  • Patent number: 11574257
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for replacing an accommodation of a canceled booking for a guest user. In an embodiment, an accommodation management system receives, from a homestay application, an indication that a booking for the accommodation in a region by the guest user over a time period has been canceled. The system retrieves a homestay listing associated with the booking and retrieves attributes of the homestay listing. The system maps each attribute to a set of similar attributes in an equivalence table. The system retrieves a set of available hotel listings in the region for the same time period and determines attributes of each available hotel listing. The system determines a set of comparable hotel listings that each include similar attributes to the homestay listing and sends a command to book a comparable hotel listing the guest user during the time period.
