Royal Mail invests in advanced parcel sorting technology

LinkedIn +

Royal Mail has installed automated parcel sortation machinery in its Bristol Mail Centre to speed up the processing of parcels.

The new technology replaces a manual sorting process that can be both time consuming and physically demanding, often requiring two separate sorts to get parcels in the right place for dispatch.

It will also increase Royal Mail’s capacity to process parcels at peak volumes by enhancing efficiency. Currently about 12% of Royal Mail’s parcels are machine sorted and the company plans to increase that to over 80% within five years.
