Automated sortation systems can improve productivity, throughput and delivery accuracy. They can be beneficial in several parts of the supply chain:
• efficient unloading of inbound containers
• fast distribution to retail outlets through cross-docking
• cost-effective order picking
• fast and accurate shipping sortation.
Vanderlande offers a range of sortation systems tailored to individual business processes, products, required throughput, and the volume and nature of sort destinations.
These systems consist of both line sorters (sliding shoe sorters and pusher sorters) and loop sorters (cross-belt sorters and tilt-tray sorters). Vanderlande has implemented automated sortation systems at many well-known companies such as Amazon, Urban Outfitters and Edeka.
