Datalogic to supply DHL with package sorting stations

Bologna, 28th October 2010 – Datalogic will provide DHL with solutions for sorting parcels at the “DHL Express” Hub of the International airport of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG).

Datalogic will supply 29 reading stations to the worldwide logistic leader, which will capture the images to save them locally, alongside 89 NVS9000 cameras and relevant spare parts.

DHL noticed major improvements right from the very first applications of Datalogic’s solutions, with a rise in the management and processing capacity of the images captured (the so-called throughput). The reading speed is now 98% on the so-called “tilt tray sorter” (tilting on roller/conveyors) and 99% on the Cross Belt (crossed rollers/conveyors).

The sorting system that DHL uses is totally automated, with over 4 km of conveyor belts and a shipment processing capacity of up to speeds of 90.000 pieces per hour. The structure is also designed to be able to link-up to over 100 service centres and gateways throughout the United States of America.

To be pointed out finally, is that the new system supplied by Datalogic, enables 100% of real reading rate, because it is also able to manage unread parcels and those without codes, tipped parcels and those with damaged or incorrect codes.

Mauro Sacchetto, CEO of Datalogic commented: “Thanks to this new partnership, Datalogic further strengthens its leadership on the transport and logistic market, proving yet again the quality and uniqueness of its products. And we don’t intend stopping here. Each new work order for our company represents just another point towards further growth, because we aim at always finding the best solutions possible for our customers and partners, even if this means investing a considerable slice of our turnover, or rather 8%, in R&D.”
