Omniva buys sorting line for new logistics centre
Omniva has bought a sorting line for its new logistics centre in Estonia. French-Italian company Fives will build and install the sorting technology.
Ansi Arumeel, Member of the Management Board of Omniva, commented: “The new sorting line will be the most modern one in this region and has to meet the expectations imposed on it for the next 15 years to come.
“As we expect a continued rapid growth of parcel volumes in the coming years, an efficient sorting line is crucial for success in the future.”
Arumeel said that the new technology was a major step-up from the company’s existing technology.
“For example,” said Arumeel, “the current sorting line can sort parcels between 32 different regions, but the new one will be able to sort between 400. Among other things, the new sorting line is capable of sorting nearly three times more parcels in one hour and do so in a much more exact manner.”
Arumeel added that the new sorting line accepts both small parcels and larger shipments weighing up to 50 kg.
“Almost the entire sorting process is going to take place on the line and employees will have to manually sort only a few parcels that the machine is not able to sort for one reason or another,” Arumeel added.
