Wouldn't all packages need to be picked up AND delivered? It maybe better to think of the record as a "routing" record. Essentially a pickup record and a delivery record would contain the same type of information and would not need to be in seperate tables. A routing record would probably contain a time and place regardless of if it is a pickup or a delivery. You could have a field that designated the routing record as either a pickup type record or a delivery type record so that you can sort by that field. Then each order would be related to two records in the routing table.
