Title (EN) PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION/TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND INTEGRATED PHYSICAL DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE DISTRIBUTION/TRANSPORT PHYSIQUE ET SYSTEME DE DISTRIBUTION PHYSIQUE INTEGRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A physical distribution/transportation system which has a plurality of nodes (2) at which packages sent from the senders and to be delivered to the receivers are gathered, a dedicated traveling line (4) by which a plurality of the nodes (2) are linked with each other, a traveling truck (6) which travels from a node (2) to another node (2) along the dedicated traveling line (4) and a travel control means (22) which controls the operation of the traveling truck. An ordinary vehicle which travels on an ordinary road (18) is used between the node and a user. Thus the physical distribution/transportation system comprises a combination of the dedicated traveling line (4) and the ordinary traveling lines which are the ordinary roads (18). An integrated physical distribution system including the physical distribution/transportation system like this is also disclosed.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un système de distribution/transport physique, lequel comporte plusieurs noeuds (2) au niveau desquels sont rassemblés des paquets qui proviennent d'expéditeurs et qui doivent être envoyés à des destinataires. Ce système comprend également une ligne de transport à vocation particulière (4) qui permet de relier entre eux les différents noeuds (2). Un chariot mobile (6) se déplace d'un noeud (2) à l'autre (2) le long de cette ligne de transport (4), tandis qu'une unité de commande de déplacement (22) va gérer le fonctionnement du chariot mobile. Un véhicule ordinaire circulant sur une route classique (18) est ensuite utilisé entre le noeud et l'utilisateur. Ce système de distribution/transport fait appel à une combinaison de lignes de transport à vocation particulière (4) et de lignes de transports traditionnelles consistant en des routes classiques (18). Cette invention concerne également un système de distribution intégré qui comprend un tel système de distribution/transport physique.
