Parcel throughput volumes are rising, next day delivery and exponential growth in global e-commerce has led to high competition in the Parcel sector. With global parcel market revenue, now exceeding $200 billion annually – Posts seek optimal, efficient operation at sites and a drive towards increased automation.
TRANSNORM Singulation Concept (TSC) was born out from the clear inefficiencies in manually unloading parcels piece by piece from trailers in high volumes. TSC means that time-saving, bulk 3D unloading becomes a reality. Following this, the necessity to separate the parcels is clear – automated separation through innovative TRANSNORM modules satisfies the necessity, complementing and fully maximising high capacity sorters by fulfilling the single-file parcel flow criteria.
Cascading parcels are separated from clusters using a waterfall principle, spreading multiple parcels, originally either side-by-side or mounted on top of one another into single file alignment. Queuing with defined gaps is fully facilitated meaning DWS equipment can then detect and identify parcels before onward high speed handling ahead of sorting.
TSC covers unloading, linesplitting, merging, alignment, timing and loading functions. These modules are scalable and standardised. No complex software or controls are required with adjacent modules work in harmony.
The adaptable, scalable TSC portfolio enables multiple layouts dependent on the throughput requirements and space available within the facility.
What was previously a time and labour intensive process not suitable for major Post and Parcel players is instead a smart combination solution which increases automation making a real-world difference in terms of productivity and efficiency.
