This article presents the development of a multi-agent system in charge of self-managing a delivery system. The article focuses on the delivery management system and not on the movement systems of the different used vehicles./nThis system consists of different types of vehicles, each with different characteristics, and there may be several instances of each type of vehicle. There will be three operating agents (Drone Operator, Car Operator and Amphibious Operator), an agent that will be responsible for creating random tasks (used only in simulations) and another one that is responsible for distributing these tasks to the operators taking into account the algorithm. This algorithm follows the bases of backtracking and its main function is to assign a task to a vehicle taking into account the distance, the consumption, the limitations of weight and distances, etc. The whole system has been developed in JADE on java. The described software performs a complete simulation with a console in which it is indicated relevant information such as the tasks that are created, the type of vehicle and the instance of that type of vehicle that resolve the delivery, among others. The purpose of this system is to minimize costs and times.
