Vanderlande secures order in Romania from Urgent Curier
Vanderlande recently won the contract to supply an automated sorting solution for Urgent Curier in Bucharest, Romania. This is the company’s first linear shoe sorter solution for the Romanian market.
This investment confirms Urgent Curier’s status as the most modern parcel handling company in Romania. “Vanderlande’s professionalism as well as its high quality sorting solution with a proven track record around the world were among the reasons to choose them as system supplier”, said Mr. Damian of Urgent Curier.
The heart of the solution will be Vanderlande’s POSISORTER sorting system, incorporating the latest ergonomic developments including low noise and easy maintenance. The sorter will be able to sort 7,000 parcels per hour, and future modifications will allow this to be increased to 8,000 parcels per hour. Vanderlande Industries’ software tools are also an essential part of the sorting process at Urgent Curier. “Users increasingly need on-demand access to information that is often hidden within different data sources. Creating reports that provide the necessary insight at strategic, operational and technical levels is therefore often time-consuming and requires specific knowledge”, explains Roald de Groot, Key Account Manager Parcel & Postal at Vanderlande Industries. “The Vanderlande Industries VISION software suite offers a transparent solution for gathering, storing and analysing data that allows our customers to make better decisions about the performance and efficiency of their total process.”
High-capacity, high-accuracy sorting of a wide range of products
The POSISORTER provides positive high-capacity and high-accuracy sorting of a wide range of products. This horizontal, high-speed sorting conveyor has full-width extruded aluminium carriers on which moulded divert shoes are mounted. These shoes slide across the carriers, pushing the products gently into the output spurs in a diagonal movement. The construction of the carriers creates a closed deck, so that no objects can fall through or become stuck. Maintenance is quick and simple, with a patented ‘plug-and-play’ carrier design that allows a shoe to be changed in less than 60 seconds, using only an Allen key.
