Automated Sortation Conveyor Systems | FORTNA

Solutions: Sortation

Move a broad range of products and packaging to the right places at the right time

Sortation is essential for supply chain systems to run smoothly with the rise in labour shortages, SKU variability and e-Commerce distribution demands. FORTNA offers a broad range of conveyor and sortation solutions that can create a more responsive operation to effectively handle high volumes of cases or totes with speed, accuracy and high throughput.

FORTNA oversees all aspects of conveyor and sortation systems in-house, handling design, engineering, installation, fabrication, software and controls to bring together all elements of a complete, tightly integrated solution. This expertise optimises product flow and makes the most of limited floor space and labour in greenfield and brownfield projects.

Maximise efficiency and accuracy with a distribution centre sortation system

When it comes to getting the right products to the right destination at the right time, any delays in the sortation process can significantly impact the delivery process. That’s why it is critical for a distribution centre to have an efficient and reliable sortation system in place.

FORTNA’s single-source, turnkey approach expedites project timelines and simplifies troubleshooting, ensuring high-quality systems that run at peak efficiency as part of advanced automated solutions. With faster implementation of modular designs, you can ensure your process meets and exceeds customer expectations during busy seasonal periods.
