Fully automated sorting system
02 May 2019
Interroll has received a large follow-up order from Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) for the delivery of five crossbelt sorters. The fully automated, high-performance sorting system will be installed in the existing system infrastructure of a Swiss reference customer.
The increasing demand in e-commerce is driving a steady increase in mail volumes around the world and presenting many postal companies with new challenges. This particularly applies to processing and sorting the rapidly increasing numbers of smaller parcels with different packaging, sizes and weights.
To flexibly and efficiently meet this challenge as a general contractor, Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) was called upon to deliver the latest conveyor and sorting technology, as well as software solutions for a mail center in the Zurich area.
"The new order is now building on the many years of successful collaboration between Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics and Interroll in Switzerland", says Martin Resch, CEO of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics AG in Switzerland.
"We are looking forward to continuing our contribution to the performance and flexibility of postal companies in the future, thanks to our reliable and flexible sorter solutions in collaboration with Siemens," says Jörg Mandelatz, managing director at Interroll Fördertechnik.
For fully automated sorting processes in the market of courier, parcel and express postal service providers, Interroll offers horizontal and vertical sorters. With a curve radius that can be reduced to as little as 2.5m, Interroll's range also includes particularly space-saving sorter solutions. Its new infeed modules offer a potential increase in goods flow from automatic sorting systems thanks to optimal configurable infeed speeds. They also have low space requirements.
