The PORT (Point of Reception Technology) Secure System employs a delivery box for receiving goods ordered via the Internet, and transport boxes for delivery of goods requiring special handling during delivery. PORT has at least one inner bay for receiving a transport box containing delivered goods. The transport box includes:
~ A lock so the box may only be opened upon delivery or by an authorized delivery person.
~ Ability to maintain an environmental parameter, such as a cold or a warm temperature, for proper storage during delivery of goods that have particular environmental needs
The delivery box has at least one secure door for access to the interior, and a second door for access in a pass-through fashion. In one embodiment, the delivery box is configured for through-wall mounting, having a secure outside door and an inside door such that goods are delivered into the delivery box through the secure outside door, and are removed by the customer through the inside door.
