SWISS POST

The amazing juggle championship

The challenge

Facing the surge of e-commerce and transitioning from traditional letters to lighter parcels and small bags, the Swiss Post encountered several challenges in its main hub for letter and small parcel distribution:

  • Adapting to rapid growth and high-speed demands
  • Handling a diverse mix of parcels, letters, and bags efficiently
  • A tight layout across two floors, requiring effective optimization of space and resources

 

The solution

Körber, the systems integrator for the entire project, implemented a solution based on innovative sorter loops: a unique combination of both horizontal and vertical sorters on two levels. Interroll smart platform solutions for material handling and sortation were seamlessly integrated, ensuring smooth operations. The installation of high-speed sorters with numerous destinations further optimized throughput.
