Lativia Post has signed a deal with print, mail and customer communication solution provider, BlueCrest, and local system integrator RECK, for the provision of new sorting technology to handle growing e-commerce volumes.
As part of the deal, Latvia Post will invest in BlueCrest’s TrueSort Parcel Sorting solution with dual bomb-bay processing. TrueSort provides Latvia Post with automated, high-speed parcel sorting at high throughput rates.
The TrueSort solution is complemented by BlueCrest’s OneSort technology, which delivers dimensioning and data-capture accuracy and provides Latvia Post with real-time intelligence to streamline logistics planning. BlueCrest has also custom-built a unique manual sort station for any items that cannot be automated.
Alberto Pereira, business manager, EMEA, BlueCrest, commented, “We first heard about Latvia Post’s ambitious automation plans in 2018. Working with our in-country business partner RECK, we conducted several in-country workshops that convinced Latvia Post that BlueCrest technology and expertise would meet the desired outcomes.
“A growing aspect of this Post’s operation is small, hard-to-handle packages from e-commerce activity. The organization recognized the efficiency and integrity with which our TrueSort system handles very small, lightweight packages up to 10kg. We look forward to a very successful, ongoing partnership.”
