  • Publication number: 20200327633
    Abstract: A delivery vehicle management system stores a delivery plan information regarding a traveling scheduled path of each of a plurality of delivery vehicles, acquires a position information indicating a current position of each delivery vehicle, calculates an expected arrival time for each delivery vehicle to reach a cross dock based on the delivery plan information and the position information of each delivery vehicle, specifies the delivery vehicle in which a standby time occurs when each delivery vehicle is permitted to use the cross dock in an order in which the expected arrival time is earlier, and a length of the standby time of each delivery vehicle, and notifies a driver of the delivery vehicle specified by the specifying unit of a time point delayed from the expected arrival time by the length of the standby time as a time point at which use of the cross dock can be started.
