We live in an ever-changing world that is more connected than ever before. Products can be purchased anytime, anywhere, anyhow – and this requires a more sophisticated logistic network, 24/7.
The drive towards automation continues to grow as both labour and space become scarcer. Parcel sorting centres must maximise the throughput from their assets, while delivering the highest possible service.
To keep pace, Vanderlande offers DIRECTSORT. It is part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – which seamlessly integrate innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.
As volumes increase, everything must run smoothly in order to optimise flows and increase productivity. Therefore, evolutions come in configurable modules that are managed by integrated software. This means that DIRECTSORT can be easily adjusted to any depot’s ongoing needs and expanded to match future requirements.
New modules can be fully tested and integrated in an extremely short period of time, mitigating any operational impact. In addition, DIRECTSORT is highly robust in terms of maintenance and being able to handle changes in the parcel flows.
For high-performance, cost-effective and scalable operations, the optimum solution is Vanderlande’s DIRECTSORT evolution.
DIRECTSORT can handle many types of parcels and be used to define the optimal sortation solution.
DIRECTSORT is a scalable solution that adapts to changing volumes, parcel characteristics and new technologies.
