  • Publication number: 20200311669
    Abstract: This application relates to apparatus and methods for assigning containers to storage racks of a delivery vehicle. In some examples, a computing device may assign a first number of a plurality of containers to a first section of a storage rack of the delivery vehicle. Based on determining that the first section of the storage rack cannot store the at least one additional container, the computing device may assign a second number of the plurality of containers to a second section of the storage rack. The computing device may also assign additional containers of the plurality of containers to other sections of the storage rack. The computing device may transmit data identifying the container assignments to a mobile device, such as one operated by an associate. The associate may proceed to store the containers in the storage rack of the delivery vehicle according to the received data.
