Datalogic to implement parcel systems for Royal Mail 29 June 2015

Improving the speed and efficiency of parcels sorting

Datalogic has signed an agreement with Royal Mail to implement a new Parcel Sorting System in around 20 mail centres across the UK. The automated parcels sorting machines will improve the speed and efficiency of parcels sorting at mail centres nationwide, and enable enhanced tracking of barcoded parcels in the Royal Mail network. The order has a total value of around €29.0 million.

Datalogic, and others, have been involved by Royal Mail with the challenge to automate the processing of barcoded parcels in a limited space within their existing mail centres. Throughout the process, the Postal team based in Telford, Pennsylvania, has shown to have a clear understanding of Royal Mail’s requirements to provide a scalable solution that fully addresses their needs from a technical, operational and business perspective.

Datalogic was awarded the contract to deliver these systems and will provide a turnkey solution that includes design engineering, software, controls, programme management, subcontractor management, installation, commissioning, training and support.

The solution also included automated unloading of parcels; transportation conveyors and induction equipment, etc.; dimension, weigh, and scan systems (DWS); robust MIS/IS support and ASortation System.
