Web Service receives lots of types of requests

I am going to be writing a web service in Visual Basic .NET internally for
my company. This web service is going to be setup to send various kinds of
messages to the internet since the main production servers currently reside
in the DMZ. The main production servers are in the DMZ and are behind a
firewall so they are not able to send messages externally to the internet.
This internal Visual Basic.NET web service will be calling various types
of other external web services so that the information can be consumed. For
example one call will be setup to obtain financial information, another web
service would be to obtain weather data, other web service would be to obtain
travel information.
Thus each type of call to an external web service will be different.
How would you setup this internal web service to be able to process the
different types of web service calls that it needs to be made in Visual
Basic.NET?

Just create per usual. In this internal web service, right click on Web
References, and add references to the external services.

Obviously get the internal web service working first, without any external
references
