Description

The invention relates to a method for depositing goods in a locker and a procedure for Returning ordered goods according to claims 1 and 2 and a locker system for carrying out the procedure ren according to claim 30.

There are lockers known by several people can be used. For this purpose, the Per same keys to the locker door open and deposit or remove the goods. There are also lockers known by electro African key systems using alphanumeric keyboards and code locks can be locked. People that enter the same codes, the lock system e unlock if necessary.

DE 94 07 802 U1 is a fan unit with several ren, with an openable locking mechanism depot compartments equipped with door Inclusion of landfills, such as business papers, securities car papers, checks, credit cards, keys or Like. Valuables, known to be a central electronic Control and operating unit for the individual closure mechanisms of the deposit compartments. The tax and Be The service unit has at least one card reader for reading a master card or a customer euro check card of the financial institution. When inserting the master card one of the locking mechanisms is inserted into the card reader the deposit compartments from the central electronic tax and control unit assigned a customer number. The bank can, using the master card and  when entering the relevant customer number, the ent open the speaking bank compartment. The customer can also use his EC card, which he inserts into the card reader, open the depot assigned to him. Through this measure me it is possible that the customer, without in the personal need to contact the financial institution for example due to an electronic call Can reserve a depository in the subject unit, which - except with the bank's master card - can only be opened with his customer euro check card can.

The known locker system is not order one from different deliverers or Customers usable locking system, in which the deposit compartments can be occupied by any X deliverers and the se of any X addressees, which the deliverer ad are concerned, openable. Furthermore is a bele tracking of a depository by an external Calculator not possible.

In contrast, the invention based on the task of operating a process To improve locker system.

The invention is based on the idea that more and more Goods ordered by catalog via mail order or ordered goods directly via a distribution system, e.g. B. about Delivery services to be delivered. This kind of goods Shipping is done through online shopping on the Internet continue to expand. The delivery and distribution ü take over locally, nationally and internationally active companies Delivery services such as B. UPS, FedEx, Post, Hermes, DPD and others, and at the local level also smaller deliveries ler who u. a. for the national delivery service operators or mail order companies or goods manufacturers and - distributors and freight forwarders are active.

The deliverers apply in the normal parcel the addressee usually stays in his home  not on. The goods must either go to the workplace or redirected to the current location or at Be given to neighbors. Often is also due to the Zu actuator, e.g. B. a courier service, repeated start of the Addressees required to deliver the goods to be delivered to be able to. Other delivery services will notify you in the mailbox of the addressee who then his parcel or parcel from the post office parcel counter can pick up. After several unsuccessful delivery attempts the parcel or parcel with the goods is usually on sent the sender back. These processes are for the Delivery agent with a large administrative, time and energy associated effort and costs. For the customer or The addressee means the defective delivery that he urgently needed goods don't get what on time not only for private individuals but also for industry companies applies equally. The addressee wishes in the Nor should the rule be that the neighbor intended it for him Accepts goods. The same applies to family members, to whom the goods are not addressed, e.g. B. in the case be set birthday or christmas gifts. A target The invention is therefore to remedy this.

According to the invention, the object is achieved by a method ren, as specified in claim 1 and in addition ordered claim 2 in the case of delivery of a good or goods that the addressee sends to the sender wants to send back. The process is not just on verse the and private individuals limited, deliverer and addressee can also be companies that take the procedure under can use a wide variety of problems.

The method according to the invention enables delivery and delivery of goods outside of normal Office hours, even at late hours. Urgently needed Goods, e.g. B. spare parts, can be in a certain place in a locker of a locker system that after the procedure works, be deposited. For the commercial  Usage offers itself, for example, that the Fitter sends parts to the next location, which he then from a subject addressed to him by the deliverer Can see location. Travel company, car rental company ter, etc., documents, keys, etc. can be sent to certain locations for the customer, be it a business customer or a private individual. The procedure he also possible that the locker as a distribution center can be used for overnight package services.

Advantageous process steps are in claims 3 to 29 self-explanatory for the procedure processes and for the operation of a locker system, for the settlement of user fees and the temporal che control of the occupancy are necessary.

In claim 30, the construction of a locker system Implementation of the method according to claims 1 and 2 indicated in the claims 31 and 32 advantageous Wei training to move goods until the completion of the Ü handover and billing for the use of the locker to be able to manage.

Locker systems according to the invention are expedient sometimes as larger locker units on U and S Railway stations, train stations, airports, shopping centers, Petrol stations, in larger housing estates and post offices posed. The customer or addressee has the possibility speed, at any time of the day, e.g. B. on the way from the Ar goes home, the deposited arti he ordered or the goods placed in the locker. The delivery and collection is done with native e electronic key systems or customer cards of the System operator, e.g. B. smart cards. But it is also on whose electronic key systems can be used up to to the conventional EC card, if at the same time a bank account is established to verify the PIN code  To be able to check in before entering a locker Addressees or deliverers can be opened.

When networking the individual computers, the locker lay, which is not necessary, to a computer network, which is coupled to a central administration computer, z. B. over the public telephone network, the Internet in addition, a central control and monitoring of the Lockers and goods movements possible. The About guarding the lockers, changing fees, to authorization addresses, the printout of statistics, the locking of individual lockers, etc. possible centrally from the headquarters of the administrative computer Lich.

The process according to the invention and the training thereafter te locker system allow that when ordering an article, e.g. B. in a mail order company, with the Be the delivery address of the addressee and the address the desired locker system in which the Gut de to be posed, to be abandoned, as well as the Kun dennummer. It follows that the customer also to everyone Any locker system anonymously without address details can have the goods shipped. The parcel service delivers the goods and deposit them in a free lock compartment of the locker system, for what purpose the delivery Put a chip card in the chip card reader of the lock introduces a specialist system. The computer of the locker system is looking for a free, suitable size closure fold if packaging sizes are still entered. The Deliverer then gives the customer number on the keyboard the pickup, which serves as the address. Only the compartment opens or the lock gives the door or the locker door is open for opening. After this Depositing the goods in the locker closes Door either automatically or by hand through the door closed actuator. Then the lock system is auto locked by the computer. The deliverer or courier  cannot open this compartment a second time. The Bele a locker for a specific addressee can be queried by the addressee by using his chip card or its electronic key system for the Occupancy display uses. But it is also possible that Mail order company or the parcel service an electronic Mel delivery to the customer or addressee via the Internet gives. It is also the Er possible that the addressee or the deliverer by telephone request to the computer at correspond appropriate voice output from the computer can ask whether a Package or good is deposited for him. Likewise, at Corresponding design also querying the Bele for the addressee via the Internet. This is it is only necessary to enter the customer number will. With higher levels of insurance would also be one PIN number or the request of biometric data required to identify the addressee. Now the good the addressee leads from the locker ne chip card in the chip card reader of the locker system and enter a PIN code. When using an ab bookable cash card shows a display the Fachge touch on, which depends on the subject size and duration because result, as well as the card balance. There is a automatic debiting with the opening of the door to the good to be able to remove. In the event that, for example Card credit has already been used up, the card can ü Via the operator station of the locking system or via others Charging stations can be charged. This can also happen a bank connection.

The lockers and their doors that are open to the public Lich, should break-in and possibly also the Si security classes must be designed accordingly. It emp it is also the case that the compartments and the control unit alarm contacts to prevent damage report the locker system to the operating personnel immediately can. Because the doors are basically locked and  the occupancy can only be determined by authorized users can, provided that certain goods are deposited for him also externally, unless such expressis verbis is provided for a person not recognizable whether a Locker is occupied or not. Since all operations from monitors the computer of a locker system and the Movements are saved is a landfill logging and removal. In addition, over picking up a log, the electro nically registered and managed or also acknowledged, in the form of a printout, if a printer is available is. To pick up goods, we recommend Chipkar biometric data, etc. Advantageous like an EC card, there is also a PIN code Introduce fuse so that even when using a Customer card third party without knowing the PIN code cannot prove that they have access. Dar In addition, customer cards can be part of the system taking anytime like a bank card from the central computer can be blocked on call. Authorized to access The locks can either be stored in the computer's memory plant or managed in a central computer, in the latter case, each time using a Locker system a connection to the central computer ter is done.

The invention is described below with reference to the single figure additionally explained.

In the figure, three locker systems 3 , 4 , 5 with un differently sized lockers 1 and several loading control panels or dialog data terminals 16 are shown, which are located at different locations, for. B. in residential complexes or in a gas station. In the background, also integrated in the locker system, each has a computer 8, 9 10 that operates the electronic lock system of the locker system and controls the controllable lock systems of the individual doors 2 of the lockers 1 . Each computer has a screen 18 , 19 , 20 on which the service specialist or the operator can control and monitor the processes of the locker system. Such a computer can also be removed from the locker system, e.g. B. in the counter of a petrol station, and is coupled via a bus line to the locker system. The computer is also connected via telecommunications connections 12 , 13 , 14 to a telecommunications network 11 , for. B. connectable to the Internet or via a modem with a telephone 17 . As a result, a computer network with a central management computer 15 , for. B. the administrative computer of a delivery service, manufactured, through which all goods movements in the lockers can be called up or are also reported automatically in order to manage and process these data. The opening of a locker is effected by means of a chip card 7 , which can also be a loaded cash card. A keypad 6 , for example, is used to enter a PIN code or a customer number that enables the door 2 of a locker to be opened. The keyboard and possibly also al-numeric displays are part of a dialog terminal 16 , which can also have a viewing screen, in which - as with an EC machine - user guidance is shown to the user, be it the deliverer or the user Addressee to facilitate the operation. Via this display or the display it is also possible to display which compartment is occupied for which addressee or only the compartment is shown which is occupied by a good or a package for the addressee. Conversely, if the goods are returned, it is possible for the addressee to deposit the goods in a compartment. He gives the customer number for the return, so that via the central administration computer 15 the delivery service is informed that a product to be picked up is deposited in a locker. The deliverer opens the relevant compartment with his chip card, for which purpose he receives either a special compartment number from the operator or a special pick-up number or coding to enable access.

In all cases there is a completely anonymous delivery of goods processing or return. The delivery is anytime possible, as well as the collection, so that the addressee of a such a system even after office or business hours Can pick up the package from the locker.
