The Services in the recent logistics environment aims for situation information based logistics service centered around the user by utilizing various IT technologies such as mobile devices, computer systems, and GPS. This thesis proposes a smart logistics service model for providing web-based intelligent logistics service by utilizing smartphones in a smart environment. The proposed service model can use not only the basic logistics delivery information but also the location information and situation information of the delivery vehicle and user as the determining factor information for logistics delivery route and scheduling decisions, and can provide user-based smart logistics delivery service. Through this service model, it is possible to engage in the development applied with various IT logistics convergence services based on situation information between deliverer and user which occurs in real-time.
