The purpose of this device is to allow a delivery vehicle to arrive at a distribution center/manufactur- ing site and by means of information and data delivered in route by wide area r.f transmission to the device, to locate and access the correct entry point by transmitting from the device an identitica- tion access coded signal to a receiver located in the site. The device would allow access to the site by transmitting the proper radio signal I.D. (access code) to a radio controlled gate at the site entrance. Fur- ther the vehicle would be assisted as to which door to deliver to by the reading alphanumeric directions transmitted to the device. At the proper delivery door the vehicle operator would again be able to operate the radio controlled access door by trans- mitting the proper I.D. (another additional access code) from the device.
