Delivery management company Whistl has invested in its first automated parcel sortation machine, which has been installed at its super depot in Bolton.
Whistl is expanding aggressively in the parcels and fulfilment markets, and has enjoyed continued volume growth over the past year. As such, the company commissioned a new cross belt loop sorter in time for peak periods and to meet an increasing demand from e-fulfilment customers.
The 100-metre-long machine was designed and installed by the Beumer Group and will allow for automatic, efficient and safe handling of 20,000 small to medium parcels.
Chief executive Nick Wells said: "We continue to invest in our infrastructure to provide customers with high quality and cost-efficient services.
"The new parcel sorter gives us the scalability to meet this demand for increased efficiency and to handle the increasing volume customers want us to process without compromising on our high levels of quality and customer service."
