PT Pos Indonesia has introduced robotic parcel sorting technology at its processing center in Surabaya, a port city on the island of Java, as part of its move toward full automation.
The t-Sort system from Libiao Robotics has been integrated with Pos Indonesia’s existing IT system along with RFID parcel scanning software, to enable parcels and letters to be tracked from the moment they leave the sender until they arrive at the delivery address.
“Everything is connected,” explained Faizal Rohmat, a director of Pos Indonesia. “This means we will be able to ensure the fast and safe parcel and letter delivery that our customers expect.”
The t-Sort system consists of sorting robots, an easy-to-assemble operating platform and control software. Its modular design means it is quick and easy to relocate, so Pos Indonesia can reconfigure the sorting process with minimal disruption to the business.
Robots can be added or removed in line with parcel volumes to ensure optimum throughput speeds and maximum energy efficiency.
The switch from manual to automated parcel sorting at the Surabaya processing facility means Pos Indonesia has been able to reassign 80% of its staff to more profitable tasks within the business.
