Express delivery firm TNT has awarded industrial engineering specialist Fives Group with a contract to automate its new parcel sorting facility at Dartford in southeast England.

The new sorting solution will include a cross-belt sorter for parcels up to 50kg (110 lb) equipped with four induction lines to 79 destinations. When completed in February 2017, the system will provide TNT with a sorting capacity of up to 11,000 parcels per hour.

TNT is modernizing its infrastructure in the UK as part of its ongoing Outlook strategy to support its business growth in Europe. The modernization is mostly aimed at improving efficiency and productivity as well as reducing parcel sort times. The project includes both new and existing buildings.
