Solystic, a provider of automated parcel and mail sorting systems, mobile robotics, and real-time data and image processing, has won a number of contracts over the past 12 months, further cementing its position in the postal and parcel industry.
Recent projects include providing Posti Group in Finland and CTT Correios in Portugal with its XMS automated mixed sorting solution. Furthermore, Deutsche Post DHL expanded its fleet with the acquisition of 125 additional MARS machines for delivery round sequencing. This new contract covers almost 340 MARS letters sorters in Germany. More generally, there are more than 2,000 MARS machines sold worldwide.
Other posts to invest in a Solystic solution include Poste Italian acquiring 33 Soly Sort systems – a mobile robotic sorting solution and La Poste in France investing in Solystic’s container management solution Soly Move for the Roissy PIAC airport site.
Furthermore, in 2019 PostNL chose Solystic for its Small Parcels Sorting Center project to sort and prepare delivery routes for small packages, mainly from the e-commerce sector, to the whole of the Netherlands. This unique center is designed to process several hundred thousand objects per day in several thousand directions, with the possibility of extensions (the exact figures are confident at the moment). The solution chosen is highly automated and includes Solystic’s Compact Slide Tray for sorting small packages and a fleet of Soly mobile robots to carry out the automatic handling of containers.
Over the past year Solystic has also worked hard on the further development of its SOSi simulation product, which enables users to create digital twins of industrial processes. The benefit of doing this is that users can digitally visualize processes and test and adjust them to improve efficiencies.
In 2019 Solystic produced a proof of concept using its SOSi solution for its partner ARaymond in France, a major player in the automobile subcontracting sector. Solystic modelled a significant part of the company’s Saint-Egrève plant. This Proof of Concept will be extended to establish a full digital twin of the plant.
