It's certainly possible to receive SMS-messages on a computer. Think of "vote for a candidate" with SMS in a TV-show. It's all done fully automatic.
Why not ask uship.com to change their site so they can work with SMS also? They migth find it a good business opportinity to invest in.
I'm live in a developing country and the road freight transportation is backwards because people use word of mouth to source for loads. I would like to use the uship.com concept but since most transporters do not have Internet access, how can I utilize text messaging alerts to notify drivers where the closest load is?
All drivers have cell phones (not smartphones). Can text messaging be used and integrated with a logistics site and have drivers bid or make offers for available loads?
