Abstract
(EN)
Delivery routing for an item is dynamically changed based on environmental conditions the item experiences during transport. The item may be associated with thresholds describing environmental conditions which must be maintained to avoid damage to the item. If sensors associated with the item detect deviation from the set thresholds during transport, instructions to reroute the item may be dynamically generated and provided to a vehicle or shipping agent responsible for transporting the item. Options for rerouting the item include returning it to the sender, disposing of it in a nearby disposal facility, sending to an inspection facility, or sending it on to the original destination location. The environmental thresholds associated with an item, records of conditions measured by sensors during transport, and alternative delivery locations may be stored in a distributed ledger such as a blockchain. Entities associated with the shipment may have access to the distributed ledger.

Selon la présente invention, l'itinéraire de livraison d'un article est modifié dynamiquement en fonction des conditions environnementales auxquelles l'article est soumis pendant le transport. L'article peut être associé à des seuils décrivant des conditions environnementales qui doivent être conservées pour éviter des dommages à l'article. Si des capteurs associés à l'article détectent un écart par rapport aux seuils définis pendant le transport, des instructions pour réacheminer l'article peuvent être générées dynamiquement et fournies à un véhicule ou un agent d'expédition chargé de transporter l'article. Les options pour réacheminer l'article comprennent le retour à l'expéditeur, l'élimination dans une installation d'élimination à proximité, l'envoi à une installation d'inspection ou l'envoi au lieu de destination initial. Les seuils environnementaux associés à un article, des enregistrements de conditions mesurées par des capteurs pendant le transport, et des emplacements de livraison alternatifs peuvent être stockés dans un registre distribué tel qu'une chaîne de blocs. Des entités associées à l'expédition peuvent avoir accès au registre distribué.
