Title: PACKAGE EXCHANGE SERVICE USING LOCAL DELIVERY SERVICES
Abstract:
A cloud-based package-exchange-service for package delivery to, and pick-up from, a target vehicle includes a GPS-based proximity module. The GPS-based proximity module receives current GPS coordinates of a package delivery vehicle and of the target vehicle. The GPS-based proximity module stores both GPS coordinates. The GPS-based proximity module monitors a distance between the package delivery vehicle and the target vehicle of the customer. The cloud-based system also has a delivery module in the first server associated with a second database. The delivery module includes one or more lists of local delivery services that include registered individuals to be assigned for package exchange operations. The lists of local delivery services also include package delivery restrictions and conditions including package size, hours of operation, distance to operate, and delivery prices.
