Deutsche Post DHL and Vanderlande deal

Deutsche Post DHL and Vanderlande Industries have signed a frame agreement for the supply of the sorting and logistics handling systems for its new network of automated delivery bases throughout Germany. This means that a minimum of twenty new sites per year will be realised for the coming years. These investments are in response to the fast- growing volumes of parcels shipped to meet the increasing online orders by consumers.

Part of the systems supplied is a new bulk chute design developed as a joint project by Vanderlande Industries and Deutsche Post DHL. This chute improves productivity by its ability to buffer up to 200 parcels without any operator action. Parcels are directly processed at the delivery base which

saves time and allows faster deliveries to the customer. Formerly parcels had to be loaded manually into roll containers and again manually unloaded of the roll containers into the delivery vans at the output of the system. This process is now automated by the chutes right up to loading of the vehicle ensuring less handling and improved ergonomics.
