Solutions: Sortation Systems

Optimize inventory and shipping accuracy with automated sortation

Sortation is essential for supply chain systems to run smoothly with the rise in labor 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 optimizes product flow and makes the most of limited floor space and labor in greenfield and brownfield projects.

Technology for high, mid and low capacity

Whether you’re a small operation or a large distribution center, automating your sorting center empowers you to stay ahead of the curve, meet growing demand and exceed customer expectations.

Key factors that influence the choice of sortation technology include the volume of items to be sorted, the required speed and accuracy, and the understanding of the entire workflow to automate.

Video Case Study

FORTNA designed and implemented a new automated parcel operation for DPD in Bratislava, the largest Hub in the DPD network in Slovakia. Our proven and future-proof sorting solution allowed DPD to have higher parcel sorting capacity per hour, faster parcel handling time and higher warehouse staff productivity.

The new sorting solution shortened the time needed for parcel handling by 3 to 4 hours compared to their existing location and technology, offering better flexibility for unloading time windows. For their customers, it means a higher quality of delivery and later pickup times.
