Horizontal Crossbelt Sorter

Interroll Horizontal Crossbelt Sorters are characterized by their flexible, space-utilizing routing with curves that also conquer inclines and declines. Infeeds and destinations can be arranged in various ways and be optimized to increase the system’s performance.

Vertical Crossbelt Sorter

The main feature of the Interroll Vertical Crossbelt Sorter with linear, straight routing (“over – under”) is the distinctive space-saving, compact modular design. For example, a width of just 1.7 m (5.5 ft) is sufficient to install a vertical Crossbelt Sorter with 400 x 400 mm (15 x 15 in) crossbelt carriers. This configuration can save valuable space by transporting full trays inside the Crossbelt Sorter. And that is unique in the market.

Recommerce: The handling of returns

The management of returns – so-called reverse commerce or recommerce – is tightly linked to the booming e-commerce and online shopping markets. Depending on the type of product, the percentage of returned goods can reach 50 percent and more, as in the case of online shopping of textiles. Firms must content with this trend on top of the regular order fulfilment operations. It is paramount to find effective ways to deal with this additional flow of goods, be it through internal process optimization or through outsourcing to 3PL providers.
