The Interroll Group, the world's leading supplier of key products for distribution logistics, conveyor technology and automation continues to make good progress with the worldwide patented sorter technology.
Interroll Crossbelt Sorters will now also be put into operation in the next few years at the Finnish postal service. Mixed mail will be transported for the first time in the mail sector. The system integrator Siemens Mobility Division was commissioned by the Finnish postal service Itella with the implementation of the project.
With the implementation of the Siemens REMA (Reengineering Mail Processing) project, the renowned Interroll Crossbelt Sorter is already successfully in use at Swiss Post. Together with Siemens and Swiss Post, Interroll presented the sorting technology at a trade press conference in the world's most modern mail distribution centre in Zurich-Mlligen in November last year.
The Finnish postal service Itella now also wants to integrate the Crossbelt Sorters of Interroll. The mail distribution centres of Helsinki, Kuopio, Oulu and Tampere are to be equipped with new sorting technology for sorting newspaper, magazine and letter bundles, flats and parcels in the "Parcel and Bundle Sorter System (PBSS)", i.e. approximately 2.4 kilometres of Interroll Crossbelt Sorter technology, for which the complete feed system consisting of belt conveyors, belt curves and merges is also supplied by Interroll. This is the largest order of its type so far for Interroll, with an order value in the area of a 2-digit million figure (CHF).
