A new urban logistics delivery system is brought forward to resolve the traffic congestion. With the development of economy, there are more and more vehicles in megapolises, so the burdens of city roads become more and more heavy, and the environmental impacts and energy shortage become severer. Underground logistics system (ULS) is used to resolve the problem in many countries. For the high cost and limitations of special use, not all the megapolises can build ULS, and the effect of ULS is limited. In the paper, the new urban logistics delivery system is designed based on Rail Transit. The framework of rail transit based urban logistics delivery system is put forward. The system is composed of management information center, cargo center, rail transit and delivery workers. To support the system, general transport containers are conceptual designed. The management and control system is used to fulfill the effective operation management and control works. At the end, the paper discusses the criterion of nodes planning.
