Parcel Sorting Machine

The Parcel Sorting Machine is to be delayed a second time at Bristol Mail Centre. Originally the building of the machine was to start in November 2016. The next date for construction was June 2017. The project is to now start in January 2018. After the kit arrives it will be many months before normal day to day operations begin. At Swindon MC at best 7000 parcels per hour is achieved against a target of 10000.

JMC is about to have their Parcel Machine installed over the summer. We're being told that the Parcel Machine is fantastic and is fulfilling all expectations at Swindon especially on RMTV

We dont get RMTV very often. Our work time learnings are painful and RMTV would be better for a good sit down and rest. Very glad the Parcel machines are rubbish and will not affect jobs too much. Bit like the flats machine. Whats the point if a machine doesnt sort to the walk.

I don't work at Swindon but at another mail centre. We sort the parcels we send to mail centres with machines into mech and manual. Anything that's medium sized can apparently go through. Anything too small or too big can't.

So obviously it's the customers' fault. If only they could get their act together and only send the right size of parcel, we all could stride together into the glorious future.

A manager from our mail centre has very recently been down to Swindon to see the parcel sort machine in action.
He said it's now sorting 12,500 items per hour. That's 100.000 thousand items in an 8 hour shift, with only 10 people.

We may get one in the early new year, let's hope those wanting vr get what they want and there is some of us kept on!!! :dance
