Falcon Autotech, a leading supplier of Intralogistics automation solutions, has been selected by Asendia, a leading cross-border delivery company, to automate their parcel sorting center in Heathrow, UK. Using its cross-belt sorter technology, Falcon has designed Asendia’s parcel sorting center, which can handle 7,200 items per hour and operate in a 24 x 7 environment.
“As consumer shopping habits have increasingly shifted online over the past couple of years, their expectations have risen. Retailers thus need their orders to be fulfilled quickly. Asendia continues to be a front-runner in adopting innovative solutions. Our collaboration with Falcon Autotech, a leader in sortation solutions, underscores our commitment to the fast and efficient movement of parcels within our ecosystem.” Ed Turner, CIO, Asendia.
Naman Jain, Chief Executive Officer, Falcon Autotech, said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Asendia for delivering a world-class sortation solution for them. Completing the UK project marks another milestone for us as a company growing in the international markets.”
The system is equipped with infeed conveyors that are seamlessly integrated with automatic label applicators. All parcels are automatically labeled and enter Falcon’s automated Loop Cross Belt Sortation system. This system has automatic barcode scanning, dimensioning, weighing, and image capture capabilities. The sorter is installed on the mezzanine floor and is designed to flexibly sort parcels directly into pallet boxes, bags, or containers.
Along with the world-class design and hardware, the system is infused with Falcon’s robust and agile warehouse control system that offers different features and multiple exception handling protocols for maximum flexibility.
