TNT’s largest fully automated parcel sorting system in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region enhances parcel and freight delivery across Australia and internationally. The 20,000 square metre flagship depot is central to TNT’s goal of providing Australia’s number one express freight delivery service.
The two-belt CROSSORTER 900 that Vanderlande Industries provided offers a highly flexible solution for handling mixed flows of postal and express parcel products of widely varying sizes.
Ensuring optimal control of the sorting process and providing the ability to continuously improve and optimise performance, the depot also uses Vanderlande’s VITAL software suite including Business Process Intelligence.
According to TNT’s Managing Director Bob Black, the new Welshpool depot in Perth is an important step in further improving customer service. “This new depot has the potential to redefine efficient freight transport. The advantage of developing on a greenfield site is that we have been able to plan for future growth and the increasing demands of our customers for efficient handling and innovative services. Vanderlande Industries has proved to be a competent and reliable partner to support us in reaching these goals.”
