Qatar Postal Services Company (Qatar Post) has launched its Robotic Sorting Project. The project aims to employ the latest technological solutions to enhance productivity in the postal operations sector and improve the efficiency of material delivery to customers and distribution operations.
The system will operate with an estimated capacity of 4,500-5,000 packages per hour, representing a fourfold increase over previous volumes. It serves over 50 home delivery routes, ensuring comprehensive coverage across all regions of the country, in addition to distribution to branches.
The project encompasses a wide range of services, including e-government envelopes, postal parcels and e-commerce items of various weights. Comprising 70 robots, the system efficiently sorts shipments weighing up to 30kg and measuring up to 60cm, which covers the majority of incoming mail for Qatar Post.
His Excellency Mr Faleh Mohammed Al Nuaimi, chairman and managing director of the Qatar Postal Services Company, emphasized that the introduction of the automated robotic sorting system marks a significant advance for Qatar Post. It greatly enhances the speed of processing incoming post while reducing potential human errors associated with manual work.
He further highlighted Qatar Post’s commitment to continually enhancing its core and digital services to cater to customer needs with high-quality offerings, and to remain at the forefront of technological innovations.
