When it comes to logistics and supply chain management, efficiency is a critical component in keeping pace with customer demands and outperforming competitors. With online sales growing by the second, e-commerce, post and parcel, and wholesale distribution operations must seize every opportunity they can to increase efficiencies across their organisations.

For more than 100 years, we have helped companies automate their material handling systems to be more efficient, more productive and more profitable. Today, that tradition continues with automated sortation systems and voice solutions that streamline processes, optimise workflows, and get products from warehouses to customers’ doorsteps faster than ever before.

Reliable and dependable

We draw on our vast sortation experience and thousands of installations to provide sortation systems that deliver efficient, high-performance automated distribution and fulfillment operations for retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers around the world.

Our sortation systems accommodate the widest range of product size, shape and capacity requirements in the industry. Optimised for the most demanding applications, these systems offer the highest throughput rates at minimal speeds, preserving product integrity and key system components for years of reliable, low-maintenance operation.

Each sortation system is designed to ensure gentle handling and smooth product flow while maintaining low noise levels and consuming less energy. Systems are equipped with comprehensive software and controls to optimise operation, calibrate machine logic, and quickly diagnose issues to minimise downtime.

Proven results

Companies like Dick’s Sporting Goods and Kirkland’s trust the sortation systems because of its mission-critical reliability, durability and proven ROI.

When Dick’s Sporting Goods doubled the size of its facility from 360,000sq ft to 725,000sq ft, the company upgraded its sortation and conveyor system by adding single- and dual-sided, high-speed IntelliSort sliding shoe sorters and a high-speed IntelliMerge system. The new system delivered a 20% increase in productivity in the facility’s break-pack area and a 10% increase in productivity in the facility’s receiving area.

Honeywell helped Kirkland’s redesign its sortation system to accommodate surging growth. The redesign, which included adding an IntelliQ accumulation line and two IntelliSort shoe sorters, increased outbound throughput capacity, reduced cycle turnaround time from receipt to shipment by 75%, and enabled Kirkland’s to accommodate future growth.

A variety of tailored solutions

Every company has different needs, objectives and challenges. That’s why the company provides sortation systems tailored to any market or application. It offers solutions for a wide variety of throughput requirements and product types and sizes, from malleable polybags to rigid totes and cases.

With the widest range of sortation options in the industry from which to choose, companies can maximise throughput with a system optimised to meet their operational needs for years of reliable, low-maintenance operation.

Voice-enabled processes

Driving profitable growth and streamlining existing processes to reduce costs or accommodate future growth doesn’t always require significant changes to a company’s infrastructure. Warehouses and distribution centres can reduce operating costs and increase employee productivity and accuracy with easy-to-implement voice solutions.

Honeywell Voice solutions provides warehouses and distribution centres with streamlined, best-in-class business processes to take organisations to the next level of operating efficiency.

And because voice solutions replace paper and handheld devices, such as tablets and barcode scanners that require manual data entry, they increase productivity, accuracy, safety and employee satisfaction. The technology has helped customers increase productivity by up to 35% and improve accuracy by decreasing error rates by 50%.
