The number of physical letters being written has been dwindling ever since the invention of the internet, which – in theory – should make it the postal sector’s biggest adversary. In reality, it provides the tools required for increasingly necessary postal process optimisation and operational streamlining.   Postal operators are well established companies often backed by centuries of trustworthy services, and investing in a digitally enabled physical supply chain is the logical step forward.

IoT

Sorting devices are getting smarter – providing easier troubleshooting and helping to make informed decisions about logistical infrastructure.

High-level control

We can build and deliver a high-level control system for you, connecting hardware to business processes, transforming orders, and sorting plans into physical actions. To achieve this, we created an interface compatible with a variety of equipment, such as loop or line sorters, conveyors, printers, scales, scanners, and more.

We also provide connections to your existing information systems (WMS, mail etc.) and develop supervising apps for monitoring, troubleshooting, and controlling the sorting process.

In cooperation with a major logistics provider, we have experience in developing a digital solution for two-loop sorters in a mail distribution centre. We implemented functionalities such as sorting based on sort plans and volume-based container handling and labelling. We also provided an accessible system GUI facilitating efficient platform access, and included a tool providing operators with real-time statistical analytics.
