Global partner for future-proof parcel handling solutions

In the parcel industry, meeting service level demands is becoming increasingly tough. Shorter order lead times, later cut-off times, smaller orders and greater product diversity must all be considered. The need for maximum delivery reliability – with zero system faults – is also crucial.

Improved performance

Parcel handling companies expect the most cost-effective systems, with the highest available performance. Vanderlande understands what it takes to operate a successful depot. As such, logistic process automation plays a vital role in addressing today’s challenges in this market.
