ABSTRACT According to the situation of sales logistics transportation management in an iron and steel enterprise and the possible logistics risks, the architecture of mobile electronic delivery platform for iron and steel sales logistics based on 3G netbook is proposed. The delivery process based on 3G netbook is analyzed. The three-tier C/S-based platform framework is also proposed, including database server, application server and clients. The function design of the platform is given. Finally, the key technologies of the platform are discussed.
