FORTNA has partnered with Budbee, a Sweden-based tech company, to enhance the delivery experience for its customers with the installation of an automated parcel system that includes a new sorting solution for Budbee’s new terminal in Jönköping, Sweden.

The new automated hub – which will deliver parcels to customers from both Budbee and Instabox under a new parent company, Instabee – is based on a shoe sorter system with loop functionality designed to transport products, such as cardboard boxes and bagged items. The solution is designed to achieve a throughput of hundreds of thousands of parcels daily, with multiple outfeeds for Budbee and Instabox destinations. This futureproof solution can expand the system and reach higher throughput as demand increases.

“As a true partner, we use our capabilities and industry experience to make our customers competitive and relevant to their clients,” said Jonathan Kruisselbrink, director of sales at FORTNA. “The facility will contribute to an overall operational improvement of the customer’s parcel environment. We are very pleased to support Budbee in its mission.”

The new sorting solution is up and running to serve as many customers as efficiently and quickly as possible. “We are happy to be working with FORTNA and the operational advantages it will give us. This will help us to serve Budbee and Instabox customers even more efficiently,” commented Fredrik Nyström, Nordic general manager of Instabee.
