New Zealand Post commissions new mixed-mail sorting machines from SPPAL

New Zealand Post has commissioned Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) to equip its sorting centres with mixed-mail sorting machines and associated software. Three new Open Mail Handling Systems (OMS) will be installed in Auckland and in Christchurch, where they will be used for sorting letters, flats, newspapers, open and plastic-wrapped magazines and small parcels.

With two induction lines, the OMS can process up to 25,000 items of mail every hour. Siemens will also implement a suite of software packages that will control all mail sorting operations across the whole country.

New Zealand Post’s existing sorting machines will be integrated into the overall system so that they can interoperate with the new software.

“We view the collaboration with New Zealand Post as a strategic project that sets an important precedent,” said Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics.

“We’re delighted that our technology meets the rigorous requirements set by the customer with regard to process efficiency and individual solutions.”

The key features of the OMS include the high level of automation for letter and flats sorting, coupled with fast sequencing and sorting processes in an ergonomic environment.

The software suite comprises the fingerprint technology, the address reading software ORCA (Open Reading Coding Architecture), and the reliable Address Data and Sort Plan Management system (ADM-SPM).
