Falcon automating Asendia’s Heathrow parcel centre
Asendia has chosen Falcon Autotech to automate its parcel sorting centre in Heathrow using its cross-belt sorter technology.
The system can handle 7,200 items per hour and operate in a 24 x 7 environment.
In a statement issued on Monday (1 August), Ed Turner, the CIO of Asendia, said: “As consumer shopping habits have increasingly shifted online over the past couple of years, their expectations have risen. Retailers thus need their orders to be fulfilled quickly. Asendia continues to be a front-runner in adopting innovative solutions. Our collaboration with Falcon Autotech, a leader in sortation solutions, underscores our commitment to the fast and efficient movement of parcels within our ecosystem.”
