Automated parcel sorting
Mailroom Solutions’ automated sorting solutions are designed to small scale cost-efficient automated small and medium-size parcel handling. These sorters are all based on cross-belt technology which enables space-saving and highly reliable solutions. Our sorters are line sorters and a typical 30 output line sorter will fit in a space of 30m x 6m. They are cost-efficient solutions for medium volume parcel handling. The machines deliver the parcels to either detachable bags or roll containers according to the selected sort plan.
In our solution, it is possible to perform the shipment registration with mSorter’s beforehand and simply process the barcoded mail with the sorter. This is particularly useful when dealing with CN22 forms or Customs data. It is also possible to perform the OCR data capture directly in the machine.
mSorters are designed to handle the small and mid-size eCommerce parcels efficiently. mSorter recognizes the delivery address instantly and registers the shipment automatically. This can be an upstream process for example the Line Sorter or in lower volume cases the shipment can also be manually sorted with mSorters into sorting frames. mSorters offer big advantages when dealing with CN22 forms or Customs data.
Typically the shipment data can be pushed to various background systems. Furthermore, the Mailroom Manager server environment supports multiple methods for notifying the recipient and directing the shipment to the cheapest delivery channel. For example to the closest parcel locker unit.
All mSorter devices support utilization of sort plans and frame types. This way also the standalone mSorters can be used with existing sortation furniture. The intuitive user interface indicates the correct sorting location using a frame map and coordinate.
mSorter sorting frames also utilize sort-to-light functionality for efficient and low-error sortation process.
Streamlining an eCommerce Parcel Process
Like many mail operators, Posti Group Finland has struggled with the sudden growth of Far East eCommerce parcels. Until recently the process was completely manual and expensive.
Posti Group partnered with Mailroom Solutions to create an OCR assisted and automated process for handling eCommerce parcels.
Posti set strict requirements for the process and there were no existing solutions in the market at the time.
The ultimate goal was to develop a “One Touch” handling solution. The recipient had to be identified automatically. Posti also wanted shipments to be registered to ease the further processing and suitable notification and delivery methods to be selected automatically.
