Today’s logistics operations are facing increasing pressures. Service level agreements (SLAs) are getting tighter, even as volume dramatically increases. Customer expectations also are rising — especially when it comes to fast, free delivery (sometimes even on the same day).
Manual labour is no longer sufficient to meet the needs of this demanding environment. The throughput and volume demands of e-commerce are simply too great, even if you can find enough workers in today’s historically tight labour market.
Drawing on decades of sortation experience and thousands of installations, Honeywell offers a wide range of sortation products to optimise throughput for your unique product mix. These solutions deliver the highest throughput rates in the industry, plus gentle package handling options. In addition, Honeywell combines the latest technology with designs specifically engineered for low-maintenance operation, reducing your total cost of ownership (TCO).
Throughput rates at both standard and peak periods are critical considerations when selecting the most optimal automated sortation technology. Throughput rates can fuel return on investment (ROI) calculations, as well as provide room for operations to scale for the future — an essential component for maximising long-term value.
Another key factor to consider is your operation’s unique product mix and the types of packaging you process most. When making your selection, consider your entire product mix — including your present and future needs.
