Method to ease express delivery by merging orders based on pickup address

Shopping on line is popular and convenient, people spending a lot of money buying things on line, so workload of express is increasing, especially when online retailers do promotions. Method provided here could be helpful in reducing the pressure express is facing.

The method provided here eases express delivery by packing together the goods the buyer bought on line from different sellers in the same city. e.g. The buyer buys 5 pieces of goods on line, all of them are from one place, if these goods are send to him separately, the express delivery company will have 5 packages to be send to the same person, and also the buyer will have to wait for the 5 packages to be received. It would both waste the time of the express delivery company to sorting packages and the time of the buyer to receive the packages separately. Method here will collect the 5 orders after the buyer ordered on line, and calculate out that these sellers are in the same city, and then express delivery company could collect these goods from the sellers and pack them into one package, and then send to the buyer.

The method includes order collection module, order classification module, order interaction module, express delivery process module and the User order DB.
