Alstef Group (Alstef), which develops turnkey solutions for logistics, has partnered with automated sortation systems developer Falcon Autotech (Falcon) to install a parcel sorting system at Aramex Sydney.
The automated sorting system was built by Falcon to process up to 16,000 parcels per hour and handle various parcel sizes and shapes.
More and more logistics operations are embracing automation solutions to stay competitive and meet growing customer expectations and order volumes, with Eurostat reporting that 87% of those aged between 25 and 34 in Europe made an online purchase in 2022.
Stan Sroka, sales director of post, parcel and retail logistics at Alstef Group, said: “We are delighted to have been a part of this milestone project for Aramex Sydney. Our team worked tirelessly to ensure that the installation was completed seamlessly, and we are confident that this new installation will significantly enhance Aramex Sydney’s parcel sorting capabilities.”
Aramex Sydney hopes that the greater versatility of sorting afforded by the machine will enable its distribution network to be both swift and accurate.
The turnkey solutions specialist supported the integration of the sorter by managing installation labour and the design and supply of 1,000m2 of mezzanine platforms to mount the conveyors.
“We are thrilled with the results of this project,” added Ruby Wolff, chief operating officer of Aramex Australia. “The new crossbelt sorter will not only streamline our parcel sorting process but also improve the speed and accuracy of deliveries to our valued customers.”
