Sortation – it’s the beating heart of any warehouse operation. It’s got to be efficient, accurate and automated. And we have the innovative systems that can improve your productivity and throughput.  


Several parts of the supply chain benefit from automated sortation, through: 

  • efficient unloading of inbound containers 
  • cross-docking for fast distribution to retail outlets  
  • cost-effective order picking 
  • and fast and accurate shipping sortation. 

Vanderlande offers a range of line sorters (sliding shoe sorters and pusher sorters) and loop sorters (cross-belt sorters and tilt-tray sorters) depending on your needs.  

We have installed automated sortation systems at many leading brands, including Urban Outfitters and Zalando.
