NPI wins $36m deal to upgrade Brazil Post parcel sorting systems

US firm National Presort, Inc. (NPI) has won a $36m (USD) contract to upgrade parcel sorting systems for Brazil Post. The contract will see Dallas-based NPI upgrading nine tilt-tray parcel sorters for the national postal service in Brazil.

The upgrades will modernize existing systems to provide a better performance, improved usability and extend the service life of the end-of-life equipment by 10 years.

It will see NPI replacing the systems’ reader technology, electronics, controls and software.

The investment in parcel sorting technology comes as Brazil Post copes with growing e-commerce throughout South America.

Henry Daboub, NPI’s founder and CEO, said a key to the Brazil Post deal was that his firm was able to adapt its products to customers’ existing machinery, as it becomes more and more difficult for operators to continue maintaining aging systems.

He said: “As sorting equipment ages, it becomes more difficult to support with the limited availability of replacement parts. Not only does NPI produce technically advanced and cost-effective sorting equipment, but we can customize our products to work with a client’s existing equipment.”

$100m Partnership

NPI said the contract was the third in a series of contracts it has won from Brazil Post, totalling around $100m.

Last October the firm won a $9m deal to upgrade 27 Siemens Delivery Bar Code Sorters, while December saw NPI picking up a $54.5m contract to provide six automatic cross-belt parcel-sorting systems.

The overall package of upgrades should improve the accuracy and efficiency of Brazil Post’s sorting operations, NPI said.

“Postal providers that wait too long to respond to e-commerce growth will likely undergo a very painful transition,” said Daboub. “Brazil Post sets a shining example for postal systems around the world with its combined approach of new technology solutions and upgraded equipment.”
