  • Publication number: 20040015393
    Abstract: The present system facilitates delivery of goods by providing a locker module at a location near a customer's residential site. For a vendor to deliver a good to the customer, the vendor leases a unit in the locker module from the system controller by accessing the system controller's web site and providing details of the customer and a delivery agent. The vendor then modifies the delivery agent to make the delivery. The delivery agent provides the system controller the particulars of its delivery person. The designated delivery person accesses the leased locker unit using a registered smart card. The delivery person then places the goods in the designated locker unit. The system controller notifies the customer of the delivered good by sending an SMS message to the customer's mobile phone, the SMS message providing the location of the locker module and a unique pin number. The customer accesses the locker unit by entering the pin number.
