Abstract. Recently, IoT technology has been applied in various field. Especially this IoT technology can also be applied to delivery system. Current delivery system is high costly but somewhat inefficient. A delivery must go through the logistics hub, even if it's not a minimum distance. In this paper, we propose an enhanced parcel delivery system based on IoT technology. Firstly, we designed a sort of IoT devices which can be attached parcels. This devices has various functionalities including the ability to figure out current delivery route. Secondly, we introduce some difficulties such as : (i) issues linking IoT device into its platform; (ii) issues for designing IoT devices functionalities. Thirdly, we propose ways to improve the efficiency of IoT based parcel delivery system. From these considerations, our system may improve total economics of parcel delivery system.
