Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR REDIRECTING ITEMS IN A DELIVERY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES POUR REACHEMINER DES ARTICLES DANS UN SYSTEME D'ACHEMINEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
In the redirection process, items (110a-110n) are sent through a delivery system (130) directed to a recipient (155) at a first address (150) served by a first address plant (140). The recipient (155), however, no longer desires to have items (110a-110n) delivered to the first address (150) served by the first address plant (140), but now desires to have items delivered to an alternative address (160). Items are collected at the first address plant (140) and are held for a period of time specified by the recipient (155). Once this period of time for holding and collecting has expired, the items (110a-110n) are placed in a package (115). This package (115) is then sent through the delivery system (130) to an alternative address plant (145). Once the package (115) is received at the alternative address plant (145), the package (115) is delivered to the recipient (155) at the alternative address (160).
(FR)
Dans le procédé de réacheminement décrit, des articles (110a-110n) sont envoyés par un système (130) d'acheminement à un destinataire (155), à une première adresse (150) desservie par une première installation (140) d'adresses. Si le destinataire (155) ne souhaite plus recevoir d'articles (110a-110n) à la première adresse (150) desservie par la première installation (140) d'adresses, mais veut recevoir des articles à une autre adresse (160), les articles sont collectés à la première installation (140) d'adresses et stockés pendant une durée spécifiée par le destinataire (155). A l'expiration de cette durée de stockage et de collecte, les articles (110a-110n) sont mis dans un paquet (115), et ce paquet (115) est ensuite envoyé par le système (130) de remise à une autre installation (145) d'adresses. Après réception du paquet (115) par cette autre installation (145) d'adresses, le paquet (115) est acheminé vers le destinataire (155) à l'autre adresse (160).
