Fortna is to launch a Last-Mile Solution Center, which will be dedicated to the development and design of solutions that optimize last-mile operations processes, increase productivity and reduce costs.
The Fortna Last-Mile Solution Center is intended to maximize last-mile networks and operations with proven modular and bi-directional conveyors and sorters. It is expected to introduce modularity and standardization of last-mile automation to help organizations meet the need for scalability, flexibility and simplified maintenance. Additional benefits will include a portfolio of solutions designed to fit any site-specific requirements in the network, futureproof operations and provide built-in ability to keep pace with business growth. The company’s center will partner with parcel and distribution companies globally by offering complete network solutions, including operational design and implementation, material handling automated equipment, robotics and a comprehensive suite of lifecycle services.
According to Fortna, downstream optimization is crucial to increasing throughput and driving cost reduction in a system. The United Nations estimates that by 2030, the population living in big cities will increase by 55%, making last-mile delivery more critical for logistics companies. Fortna also points out that last-mile logistics centers are becoming even more crucial to the effectiveness of the entire distribution network. The company argues that by optimizing downstream capabilities, companies can improve overall efficiency by reducing cycle times and optimizing delivery processes and tracking and visibility of parcels by using intelligent parcel data. This reportedly ensures a fast and reliable delivery experience for end consumers.
“Fortna is an experienced partner to our customers with a comprehensive solution portfolio and deep knowledge and understanding of their needs,” said Antonio Amadasi, vice president of Fortna’s Last-Mile Solution Center. The Last-Mile Solution Center brings additional value to our mission and further helps to optimize downstream operations and reach positive business outcomes. The team will also address any further and dedicated product improvement in order to perfectly fulfill our customers’ needs.”
